This Is SO Much Better Than the Store-Bought Version!
I did enjoy that standard mac & cheese in a box as a kid. Once I grew up and tasted what “real” macaroni and cheese could taste like, though, that box stuff just really didn’t do it for me.
This recipe is the gourmet, restaurant-style version, and boy is it delicious! This certainly is loads better than any of those store-bought ones! It has a nice blend of spices, and the fresh cheese is so much more flavorful than that reconstituted nuclear-orange stuff. And you can have it ready in about an hour, including prep and cooking time. We all know how much kids of all ages love this dish – now you can take it to the next level and make all the adults crave this dish, too!
This is such a classic weeknight meal in our house, and I couldn’t imagine going through a whole month without having it at least once. If, for some reason, I haven’t made this for a while, my husband starts asking me what’s wrong! That’s how big a part of our dinner routine this is!
