Creamy, incredible macaroni and cheese

To celebrate National Macaroni Day…and because it’s so supremely wonderful ANY day. 🙂 ~enjoy!

In Mama Steph's Kitchen

Mama Steph's mac-n-cheese

I realize that calling macaroni and cheese “incredible” might seem like hyperbole, but I was really craving some of this cheesy pasta, and when I tasted this tonight, I was ecstatic! It was everything I was hoping for: creamy, cheesy, a bit crusty on top, with a nice zingy flavor, due to the dry mustard and red pepper flakes.  (Zingy is a real word, right?)

The recipe is based upon Paula Deen’s creamy crock pot macaroni-n-cheese, but I changed quite a few things.  I didn’t want to use a crock pot, as I was afraid the pasta would get too mushy. I wanted a nice, al dente pasta. Here is a link to Paula’s Creamy Mac-n-Cheese.

Now, here is what I did.
