This recipe came out of my Grandmother's recipe box. When she passed some of my favorite things I got was things from her kitchen such as her recipes, her cooking utensils, and her apron and sun hat. I have been trying some of the recipes and this one is really good, I changed it a little to make it healthier such as wheat pasta for regular pasta and 2% milk for whole milk. I also use low fat cheese but left it with regular cheese in the recipe.
