You know what I love about macaroni and cheese? It can be a side dish at a potluck or the main meal for dinner. Leftovers always taste better the next day, and it freezes well. It may be one of the most versatile dishes I make. The recipe below is no exception. This sauce is super creamy, thanks to the addition of cream cheese, making it the perfect template for whichever meal you need next.
I like to keep the basic recipe vegetarian, which allows me to go any way I like with it. Sometimes I'll add shredded chicken and other times it will be cooked bacon. When I'm looking to sneak some extra vegetables into my diet, I'll add sautéed spinach or broccoli. The possibilities are endless, so have some fun with it.
