This recipe is so easy to throw together, and doesn’t require you always have a box of mac n’ cheese in the pantry. It’s also really easily tweaked — throw whatever cheese you have/want into the sauce and you’re good to go! You can easily make the sauce in the time it takes to boil water and cook pasta, and throw in veggies if wanted, top with hot sauce, pepper, etc. The sky is the limit with this one!
