Mac and Cheese

Who doesn’t love mac and cheese? Golden crust on top and a cheesy creamy macaroni filling makes this the ultimate comfort food. Try it and see how quickly it disappears.  When we made this in the FC kitchen, everyone was fighting for the last piece!

Bring this to your next pot luck dinner and you'll see how popular it is.

Cheddar is the best for mac and cheese but you can mix it up with Gruyere and Parmagiano Reggiano for some extra flavour.
