easy recipe. yummy results. we mix different cheeses (keeping in mind when heated they need to have that melted consistency) and ingredients. we used pancetta rather than ordinary ham. we used the rendering from the pancetta rather than butter for the topping. a good recipe for the entire family to make together and enjoy.
Easy method, excellent results! Can't go wrong with this mac n' cheese recipe, it's flavorful, creamy, crunchy and of course completely hearty. The whole family loved it. Will make again!
Excellent! I used whole grain pasta, cheddar jack cheese (to keep kids happy), 2% milk and a little smoked paprika in the topping instead of garlic. Will make again! Easy method.
