Blue Ribbon Recipe

Wow, this is the ultimate macaroni and cheese recipe for any mac and cheese fan. It's creamy, gooey, and full of yummy flavor from the assortment of cheese. There's enough Velveeta for this to have just the right creaminess. A layer of cheese on top gets crusty and is delicious. We've had similar macaroni and cheese at restaurants, and now we can make it at home.
