Never thought of putting Mac & Cheese in a pie, either...

The M&C is pretty much exactly my recipe, so I know it will be wonderful -- the older the better on the cheese, and if you want to boost the cheese flavour, sprinkle it with 1/2 teaspoon of dry mustard and a dash of cayenne, and shake it to distribute reasonably evenly.

Want to make it have even more calories?

My mom always topped mac & cheese with the layer of extra cheese, then bread crumbs with melted butter sprinkled on them. Makes a really crunchy topping.

You can use a mix of different cheeses too!!
This sounds like a good recipe and I'm the only one who eats it and its a makes a smaller amount so less leftovers!!

Also to make it healthy use whole wheat macaroni-you won't notice a difference!!
