Hands down the best Mac and Cheese I have ever had! First few times I used regular salt and finally realized it said seasoned salt, believe me seasoned salt makes all the difference in the world! I'll be honest, I add more cheese than called for and use a little more seasoned salt and pepper. More Cheesey goodness right?? LOL!!
