Recipe for Macaroni and Cheese

Everyone's gonna love this recipe for macaroni and cheese. Don't make that stuff in the blue box when this recipe is so easy and tastes so much better.  You can even change it up a bit by using different cheeses just remember to use either the orange Velveeta or, if you are going to try white cheeses, try going with the white Velveeta (I think it's called Queso Blanco)....I know my daughter used a Smoked Gouda cheese along with the Queso Blanco and it would make your taste buds smile!

Your family will appreciate the little bit of effort it takes to whip up this classic.

This recipe is used at just about every holiday. It's wonderful served with just about any meal and it freezes well too. I like to make it ahead of time and just freeze it without cooking it. Take it out of the freezer the day before you want to have it, thaw and bake as normal.
