I love love love a GREAT macaroni and cheese recipe. I especially love baked macaroni and cheese. It is one of my favorite side dishes and such a great comfort food. I make this as a side dish during my thanksgiving dinner and everyone always wants seconds on this awesome baked macaroni and cheese.

So creamy and just delicious. This baked macaroni and cheese also shares my two favorite cheese choices Cheddar and Parmesan Cheese.  Enjoy.
