Nigella's Mac and Cheese





When, speaking with my husband, he mentioned that he would like to have a simple macaroni and cheese, for dinner.  I had been thinking soup since, we had not had any, this week.  


I picked up Nigella Express to see if there was an easy recipe.  While soup has peeling and chopping, it is easy to make.  This mac and cheese had to be also simple to create.  When I looked at this recipe, I was surprised at how few ingredients it took as well as the small number of steps.  Mac and Cheese, here I come.


This is very, very good mac and cheese.  I was not expecting it, looking at the recipe.  I thought it would be boring but it was not .  I did add 2 tablespoons of cream cheese to the recipe and I give some of the credit to that.  I also used a Mexican blend for the main cheeses.
