I got this recipe years ago but can’t remember who gave it to me. One of my Instagram followers messaged me, (which I appreciate) and said this looked very similar to Giada De Laurentis’ Mac and Cheese recipe. I’m not sure of the origin of it but after reading mine and hers, they are almost the same so I’m crediting Giada for this wonderful take on Mac and Cheese! It’s been a family favorite ever since I made this for them the first time!
This yummy macaroni and cheese recipe is comfort food at its finest and can be your main dish or a side dish. This is my go to recipe when I’ve cooked a ham and have some leftovers! Ham is optional, but I’ve always made it with the ham. This is not your traditional macaroni and cheese recipe because it actually doesn’t have macaroni or cheddar cheese in it! I use egg noodles and a delicious mix of fontina, parmesan, and mozzarella cheeses. I guess it should be called a different name, but egg noodles and cheese doesn’t quite have the same
