Baked Macaroni & Cheese

Muna Escobar


I first recieved this recipe from a friend down in Florida who would always take it to church functions. Everyone, including my children, would rave about it. I have changed it slightly to lower some of the fat. This would be a great recipe to sneak vegetables into, like chopped cauliflower.
