Southern Mac and Cheese

When I think of comfort food, I think of a nice pan of warm, bubbly macaroni and cheese. There are many different ways that you can make macaroni and cheese but through the years I have adapted my own, which is a mouthful of creamy cheesy pasta. You can almost pair macaroni and cheese with any meat and side but if you really want a treat, add it to your Sunday dinner lineup. My recipe is full of calories and carbs but babe, is it delicious! As always, enjoy and let me know how yours came out !
