Home-Baked Macaroni & Cheese

“Before Mac & Cheese came in a cardboard box, it was made from scratch. My Mom made the best I ever tasted, but I don't have her recipe - so I made this one up. I take it to all the family potluck dinners, and get rave reviews! This recipe fills a very large (bigger than 9x12) casserole dish.”
