Mac & cheese is a staple for pretty much any family that has kids. For me personally, I’m always trying to find a recipe that reminds me of the school’s mac & cheese from l-oooo-ng ago. We’ve been through many, many recipes as a result of this search. This one is a keeper! The combination of cheeses, the creaminess, it was just excellent. This is one occasion where the velveeta was allowed in the trial recipe and will be used again. With the other strong cheese flavors, it added creaminess without forgoing flavor.
