Mmmm cheesy

Blue Ribbon Recipe

This dish is so decadent and creamy! We loved the addition of cream cheese. It adds a slight tang and makes the macaroni super creamy. Even though there's only a little bit, you taste a bit of spiciness from the mustard. Very yummy! Perfect as an entree or a side dish. A great recipe to use leftover holiday ham too.
