“This recipe was handed to my mother by her mother, from about a hundred years ago. I have over the years adapted it to my own tastes, and I personally believe that the cheese is the key. This is great favorite for when you are not well, and need something simple and light.”

  1. Preheat oven to 350°F.
  2. Cook macaroni according to package instructions.
