One-Pot Mac and Cheese
“Who likes cleaning up after making mac and cheese? Not this girl. This one-pot mac and cheese is a family favourite, and my 3-year-old is thrilled to see it coming to the dinner table. We love to add sliced smoked sausage to this creamy mac recipe!” —Ashley Lecker, Green Bay, Wisconsin
