"This recipe was posted to ZAAR/ back in 2003 by HEP MEP. Who sadly lost her battle with Cancer in 2009. :(. Her ORIGINAL DESCRIPTION:This is the first mac and cheese I've ever made that didn't separate and get oily for me. I saw this being made on the local news a few weeks back,so I went to the website they posted and looked it up. It reminded me a lot of my mom's mac and cheese - not overly cheesy tasting. Since HEP MEP had health issuses, she omitted salt from this recipe. My review:On 10/6/11 I was looking for a different type of Mac n' Cheese to go with my Chicken Dinner,so I went looking through my saved M & C recipes. And saw this one by our deeply missed HEP MEP, so I decided to make it. I'm glad I did, :) Except for cutting the recipe in half, it was made exactly as it was written. It had a custardy taste which wasn't what we expected,but enjoyed anyway. Thanks HEP MEP, still miss you. " Keep Smiling :) " Re posted to " ZAAZ " July 11th.2014"

10 stars! I love that this doesn't require make a cheese sauce/white sauce first, but is still very creamy. I used Velveeta for the American cheese, which I hadn't bought for years. I forgot what a guilty pleasure it is :).
