So easy and yummy - I make this all year long. We eat it as the main meal with a green vegetable. It is from the Southern Living Big Book of Christmas Baking (1996).

How to Make Macaroni and Cheese

Step-by-Step

    3) shred the cheese
  • 2When macaroni is cooked, strain and put 1/3 of the macaroni in the baking dish. Sprinkle with 1 cup of the cheese.
