America I have news for you Kraft Mac ‘n Cheese is NOT macaroni and cheese. Deluxe Shells and cheese with “cheese sauce” is not macaroni and cheese. If it comes in a box with powdered cheese or a package with “cheese sauce” it is not macaroni and cheese.

Macaroni  and Cheese uses elbow macaroni, Velveeta, cheddar and a small amount of mozzarella and provolone. You add in onion powder and garlic powder as well and white pepper ( to keep the cheese pretty) and  a touch of paprika. Put it in a dish bake it in the oven on 350. You may or may not want to garnish with bread crumbs.

Short and sweet, if it isn’t oven baked, if it comes pre packaged or in a box, if it is microwave safe it ain’t macaroni and cheese.

Ok stepping down off of my soap box.

My next recipe coming the weekend has Daiya cheddar, the previously shared coconut milk “Velveeta” , and a home-made mozzarella.
