Southern Style Mac & Cheese

Southern Style Mac & Cheese
I have been on a Mac & Cheese kick lately.  I found this recipe in The Deen Family Cookbook and knew it should be good.  I was right; it was great.  It was really a traditional southern mac & cheese – creamy and cheesy!  It is really quick and easy to make since it doesn’t require a roux – a plus in my book.  The prep time is basically the time it takes to boil the pasta.  I cut the cheese down a little since the original recipe had a full pound of cheese!  (That goes back to wanting to fit into my pants again)  We served it with our favorite chicken fingers.
