“I got this off the back of a box of elbow macaroni. I happened to have all the ingredients so gave it a try. It calls for slices of American cheese rather than Velveeta found in so many recipes. Just the right amount of seasonings to give it some flavor. I used garlic salt for the salt and 1/2t onion powder for the onion. I also added 1/4t Zatarains creole seasoning.”
