I thought I’d share one of the most AMAZING mac & cheese versions that I have ever had. I made this with my mom a few weeks back and we were both blown away at how delicious it was. It’s rich, creamy and packed with huge flavor. I have actually made it twice since that first batch and will likely make it again later this week. Next time, I am going to toss in some grilled chicken to make it a complete meal for my carnivores –hahaha!
You gotta try this recipe. It’s such a tasty spin on mac & cheese…I hope you guys like it as much as we do!
