Macaroni and Cheese

Nancy sent this one in a while back....she was reading our macaroni & cheese recipes posted already. This one she writes:

This is the very best and the fastest, easiest mac and cheese recipe I've ever found. I don't remember where I got it...I know it was many years ago, but I'm betting you'll love the ease and creamy flavor or it.. I guarantee it!

This is very quick, easy and makes a very creamy dish with lots of flavor.

  1. Cook macaroni according to package directions.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, melt butter over med. heat.

People often ask me why I started even messing with cooking. Well simply put it was due to spaghetti and macaroni and cheese. When my kids discovered I could not even make such a simple recipe..well that was that. This is a very easy macaroni & cheese recipe to go along with our other posts on Mac & Cheese.
