Simple, no flour, cheesy, no fuss Mac and Cheese. Does it get any better than that? You can play around with the kind of cheese you use, I always love a nice Wisconsin Cheddar or something along those lines. I've used Gruyere, Fontina or mixtures of a few different kinds. Have fun with it. If you're skidish about eating raw egg, this is not the recipe for you. Alton Brown's recipe.
