I needed a homemade side to bring to a potluck for the Chi O alum group dinner tonight. I volunteered to make homemade mac n cheese but truthfully I usually only make Kraft’s from a box. I’m hoping this is a good as Stephanie’s picture makes it seem!

2- Bring the water to a boil, cook pasta, drain and set aside.
