Four-Cheese Macaroni Recipe

I adapted this recipe from one a friend gave to me. It has a distinctive blue cheese taste and is very filling. I like to serve it with chicken. —Darlene Marturano, W. Suffield, Connecticut

"This is most definitely NOT gross! The blue cheese gives it a sharper taste but not too sharp. LOVE this!"
