I always hated the powdery taste of box mac & cheese. So I made up my own quick stovetop version. Can be put in a casserole dish & browned on top if desired.

Use any cheese you like. Just watch to see which ones melt the smoothest. I have omitted the Mexican Velveeta & used Kraft Colby Jack with a touch of Philidelphia cream cheese, it was really good!
