Mac and Cheese! The Ultimate Comfort Food! All American!

Well, Maybe!!

    Shells Rigatoni with Butter and Cheese

It was supposed to be Shells, but I discovered I didn’t have any. Hazan says he has made this dish with rigatoni or maccheroni. Rigatoni it was!

THIS is Mac and Cheese – Italian Style. Creamy. Cheesy. Delicious. Simple. Quick. And quick is good because I haven’t been home much lately.

Instead of the regular cheddar or **GASP** Velveeta (YES! I do like it this way!!) this recipe uses Parmigiano-Reggiano.

No meat in this one. Makes a really good side. Or just by itself! Try this one…..

This is on page 95 of Hazan’s 30 Minute Pasta.
