Mexicali Cheese Pasta

Kimberly Kay


I found this recipe on the back of a box of Mueller's 'Ready-Cut' Macaroni; it turned out really delicious and smells wonderful while it's in the oven and when it comes out! It's also quick and easy to make.

*I used the 'Ready-Cut' pasta, but elbow macaroni would probably work just as well.
