Easy Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

Macaroni and cheese....its comfort food for sure!! It comforts me when I'm sad, when I'm happy, when I'm cold, when I'm not, when I am lonely, when I'm surrounded with people....when I'm hungry and even when I'm full...its good any ol' time, I just  love the stuff....but only if its HOMEMADE, I'm not a huge fan of boxed Mac and Cheese, maybe thats because I grew up on the REAL thing. This recipe is easy and flexible. Its creamy and OH SO GOOD!! Makes my mouth water just looking at the picture, guess I might have to make some for dinner tonight...AGAIN!

Easy Old Fashioned Mac and Cheese

6-7 c. COOKED elbow macaroni (drained, rinsed etc...)

Sauce:
3/4 brick velveeta (large brick), cubed
1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. heavy cream
Place cheese, cream and milk in a microwave safe dish. Heat in microwave at 1 minute intervals, stirring, until cheese sauce is melted and mixed. Pour over warm, drained noodles. Stir until sauce is covering all noodles. NOW comes the flexible part....you can add your favorite cooked meat (bacon, sausage, ham) and stir it in and serve OR you can eat it as is OR you can add anything you like, place it in a small casserole dish, top it with your favorite bread crumbs...broil for 1-2 minutes until bread crumbs are toasted and EAT! There are so many wonderful things you can do with this fabulous recipe! Personally  I like it with bacon or to just eat it plain...but thats just me.
