Creamy Baked Macaroni

This old-fashioned macaroni casserole gets a different twist, thanks to Gouda cheese. It bakes up nice and creamy with just a hint of zip from the hot sauce. It's comfort food at its yummiest.

    This turned out great, per hubby, very addicting per me! : ^ ) So easy to throw together and as someone mentioned you can modify to your taste or what you have on hand. Would still like to try the gouda but not sure I could get dh to eat as readily. I also used the brown rice pasta and just love that stuff. Don't think it took anything away from this dish.

    We love this Mac and cheese recipe, it's very easy to make and you can modify it to your own taste.

    Different take on mac and cheese. You cannot tell the cream of chicken is in this dish but it really does help with the over creaminess of this mac and cheese.

    I have been on a search to find a homemade macaroni recipe that doesn't have Velveeta in the ingredients list. This recipe was quite yummy. I ended up doubling this recipe, used a family size can of cream of chicken soup, and used brown rice pasta. My fiancee is raving about this dish, whereas I'm still a little undecided. I'm sure it would have been better with regular wheat pasta, but that's the downside to being gluten intolerant. I will go ahead and keep this recipe as one of my top macaroni and cheese recipes unless I find something to top it.
