I love the traditional baked macaroni & cheese casseroles but when I'm in a pinch for time, I also love this creamy stovetop version. My mom made this quite often when I was a child because she worked full-time and needed quick, kid-friendly dinners on the weeknights. This is so tasty and so easy! Why use a box dinner with powdered cheese product, when you can make this wonderful mac & cheese that kids love? I loved this growing up as did my kids and grandkids. Hope your family enjoys this just as much!
