I pretty much make the same thing but I add half a can of cream of mushroom soup - makes it really rich. If you like it tangy.. add a little V8 - turns a bright orange.. yum!

I can't wait to try this Macaroni and cheese recipe. I have been looking for one that does not have eggs in the recipe. I just pinned this to pinterest.
