Baked Macaroni & Cheese

Joelle Johnson


This is my mom's recipe.

I cook my pasta ( I only use Barilla pasta it is firmer & not mushy) just slightly underdone (about 1 minute before done)in salted water. The second cheese I use is co-jack but lots of times I clean out the cheese drawer using whatever cheeses I have on hand. Sometimes even adding more than 1 1/2 cups :) Love that cheese
Also, sometimes about 15 minutes before it is to come out of the oven I put a package of smoky links on top of the casserole and bake for 15-20 minutes until the sausages are hot. I don't always do this but for a change of pace.... enjoy
