2. Adult Macaroni and Cheese

We are calling this the Adult Macaroni and Cheese because it is elegant, (slightly) healthier, lighter, not orange/yellow in color, and a “graduated-from-boxed-mac-and-cheese” version of mac and cheese. You can use any good quality cheese, but I use white cheddar cheese for this Adult Macaroni and Cheese recipe because 1) I love white cheddar cheese, and 2) white cheese is just classy classy.
