Macaroni and Cheese for Two Recipe

Publisher Photo
THIS IS one of those dishes that our family calls "a Mama recipe". My mother rarely consulted a cookbook, so when asked for a recipe, she could only estimate. I've worked out the ingredients to make it for two, but it can easily by doubled. It's simply a good, wholesome dish most folks seem to enjoy. —Betty Allen East Point, Georgia

MY REVIEW

I love this recipe! Easy to make, quick for a night when I don't have anything else prepared. I like to add extra cheese and a breadcrumb topping made with more cheese and some parmesan mixed in. Delicious!

Very good, very rich! I only used 1/2 tablespoon of butter and it was more than enough.

This was a yummy dish and very easy to make! I have a five year old and she loves her macaroni. I loved that it was basic and you have the ability to really add anything to it to create something new or jazz it up if you are in the mood! Fantastic job!
