Cheese and Macaroni Casserole

Cheese and Macaroni casserole is my favorite casserole of all time.  This recipe is from my grandmother, and as a child I always looked forward to this delicious casserole being served.  Don’t miss out on this delicious casserole.  The name really doesn’t do the casserole justice. It is wonderful! This recipe is by Ethel Eynard. Jefferson City, Mo. 1967.

    I made this for dinner and it was soooo good and very easy. The “hardest” part was grating the cheese. I served it to company including a 10 year old, 17 year old and 22 year old and EVERYONE loved it. Definitely a keeper.
