After trying this recipe once, using Cheez-Its as a crust for your mac and cheese will be a no-brainer. Too much cheese, you say? Not even close. The salty, crunchy qualities of the crackers add a balance of texture and flavor to a creamy, mild, (and dare we say cheesy) mac and cheese.  Click here to see 6 Easy Cheez-It Recipes

Famous Macaroni and Cheese from Cindy's Table
My kids are always asking me to make my famous macaroni and cheese when they come home to visit. I am also requested to bring this to cookouts or dinners. I always make a double batch and it’s funny because the host will say, "Oh good I can save some for myself." I laugh and say, "There won’t be any left." And there never is a single noodle left. When making this dish for a casual event use the disposal pans. No cleanup!Sometimes I even like to add in fresh basil and leftover saute zucchini and summer squash! Of course you can add in lobster and ham if you want to make this an entire meal.This is also this amazing cheese called Parrano — you can use this cheese to make a great macacaroni and cheese. Try with just this cheese alone to enjoy the taste of Parrano!Click here to see more recipes on Cindy's Table.

I call this the ultimate because of the sauce — it's perfectly smooth and creamy, just the way I like it. If you prefer a less smooth cheese or a different flavor profile, feel free to substitute your favorite cheeses in. Just remember what Laura Werlin says when it comes to cheese: an infinite number of cheeses can go into your mac and cheese, but what matters is the results you're looking for. Choose the cheeses that will give you those results.
