“I got this recipe off a box of Mueller's brand elbow macaroni. It is a little time consuming but well worth the effort. It is my favorite macaroni and cheese recipe. I was hesitant to add it to 'zaar because there are already so many mac and cheese recipes but it's really, really good. I hope you try it and like it as much as I do.”
