I have loved macaroni and cheese since I was a kid. I don't care how you make -- I'll love it. But.... I am doing low carb now. I love to make green bean spaghetti (recipe on JAP) and I wondered if doing the same thing with the mac and cheese recipe would work the same way... Guess what! It not only worked -- I love it just as much as "the real thing"!! Enjoy
