It is a huge hit with my kids. We have at least twice a month. We use sharp cheddar cheese that we grate ourselves. That makes a huge difference in the taste. No pre-shredded cheese!

I bake mine in an 8x8x2 Pyrex dish. Before baking put grated medium cheddar cheese on top of the macaroni mixture. Then dot it with butter, and sprinkle paprika, salt and pepper over the top. Bake 35 to 30 minutes.. It will be hot and criispy.. Serve.with warmed canned tomatoes. .

I have been making this since 1975, and my mother way before that! To update it, I use 4 different cheeses, sundried tomatoes and basil.

The cheese is the key to mac and cheese and throughout the years I have always been looking for the right cheese to make it taste like my Mom’s and my Aunts. However the cheese that my Mom used just doesn’t taste the same as it use to. Please send info for your cheese, the name, type, where purchased, etc. I would so appreciate it.
