“My husband tuned into to Isaac Mizrahi's new show just as he was making this Macaroni & Cheese with the owner of a shop called Good & Plenty to Go. My husband was so taken with the looks of this dish on TV (and he usually doesn't like Macaroni & Cheese) he immediately saved the show on TIVO so we could recreate the dish. Well, long story short, the results were awesome (a bit greasy from the cheese, though--sop up with some paper towels before serving). It is so rich it isn't something I'd make on a regular basis, but for a special treat it was exceptional and worth the calories!”
