This baked mac and cheese is delicious. It was one of the first soul food dishes I learned to make, and I pull it out for every special occasion.
My rendition is super rich but also seasoned enough so that it doesn’t just taste like noodles and cheese. It is also Velveeta free, which is a MUST for me. A simple béchamel sauce made with cream cheese gives you all the creaminess you need. They pair perfectly with smoky braised collard greens.
