“With a few carefully chosen ingredients, canned soup and pasta was turned into gourmet mac 'n cheese! I found this recipe in Woman's World magazine. My future hubby and I really liked this mac 'n cheese. I thought this was so easy to make. I prepared the recipe and refrigerated it for later baking without a problem. When I made this recipe I used Cellentani pasta as that's all I could find. I doubled the pasta amount as I felt the dish needed more pasta. I only had 2 cups of Cheddar so I added 1 cup of extra sharp. I left out the parsley and I don't think it's needed.”
