Who doesn’t like a rich creamy mac and cheese?! This has all that and more! It does make a lot so if you want I suggest when you put in casserole pans use smaller ones so you can bake as you need. When I re-heated it, the mac and cheese seemed to dry out a little. You’re really just baking it to melt the cheese on the inside and heat through anyway.
