Patti LaBelle's Over the Rainbow Mac and Cheese

Victoria Ross Recipe

By Victoria Ross fairygirl3869

Hands down the best Mac and Cheese I have ever had! First few times I used regular salt and finally realized it said seasoned salt, believe me seasoned salt makes all the difference in the world! I'll be honest, I add more cheese than called for and use a little more seasoned salt and pepper. More Cheesey goodness right?? LOL!!

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly butter a deep 2 1/2 quart casserole dish.
