How to Make Macaroni and Cheese with a Twist


  1. Drain cooked macaroni noodles. Add all other ingredients. Mix well.
  2. Put macaroni mixture in a buttered 13x9 inch pan.
  3. Topping:
    Put one sleeve of Ritz crackers in a zip loc bag and crush.Spread the crushed crackers over the top of the macaroni mixture. Drizzle 1/2 stick of melted butter all over the top.
  4. Bake in a 350 degree oven for about 30 minutes.
    Good with ham, turkey, chicken, pork or alone!

    Note: you can use more or less bell pepper to suite your taste. I always use the red bell peppers in this recipe not pimentos. I also love onions so if you want to use a small onion, that would work.
