“I had just got home from work one afternoon, and was just sitting down to have a bowl of this "Italian Meatball And Potatoe Bake", that I got out of the new Pillsbury hamburger cook booklet(it was good), when I get a phone call from my mother saying that she wanted to have a BBQ the next day for the family that lives in the area. Only one catch, though...she wasn't cookin, lol. So I run out to the local Giant (I love the new one they built in my town), and started trying to figure out what I was going to make. This is one of the dishes. I'm very proud of it because I would consider it my best mac n' cheese recipe ever. I hope you like it! !!!P.S!!! Don't be scared to half the recipe. It will turn out fine! :)”
