Disappearing Macaroni and Cheese

Jane Asher


I call it Disappearing Macaroni and Cheese because when I brought it to my daughter's field hockey tailgate picnic, it DISAPPEARED!

Can also be done in slow cooker--just heat on low until done.

I usually use panko bread crumbs instead of the Ritz crackers.

A yummy addition is to serve with stewed tomatoes.
