Mozzarella Mac and Cheese
Believe it or not, I used to hate macaroni and cheese. It wasn’t until my freshman year of college when my friend Nathan introduced me to Easy Mac that I started liking it then. Since then, I’ve had many different kinds, 99% of them better than Easy Mac (although I do love a good Easy Mac once in awhile, who can resist a meal thats ready in less than 3 minutes? I can’t). I’m not a huge fan of yellow cheeses- don’t ask me why, I just love white cheeses more- so when I saw this recipe for mozzarella mac and cheese I ran out to the store to get some fresh mozzarella. I had some processed shredded cheese in my refrigerator which I’m sure would have worked fine but I wanted the good stuff. And boy am I glad I got it. This mac and cheese is so good I’ve made it 3 times in the past few weeks. The first few times I added some fresh basil from my basil plant in my “garden” (aka 2 plants on my balcony). I also made it a different time with some steamed broccoli and added some cayenne pepper and that was really good as well. It’s fun to play with vegetables and spices with this recipe so I hope you all give it a try!
