This is not the runny boxed kind but the real baked kind like grandma used to make.
It’s far better then any elbow mac & cheese I’ve ever eaten. You can eat this with a fork.
I was looking for the ‘old fashioned’ baked mac & cheese I remembered eating as a kid so I experimented until I accidentally stumbled upon the shells idea. The shells make it chewy and thick and oh, so much better then elbow macaroni.
