with the 2 (plus the usual guest) kids and the dog and the husband and 4 kitties.... we couldnt survive with out some creative mac and cheese alternatives.

i have a great recipe for a white mac and cheese-
3 cups of dried elbow macaroni
8oz of blue cheese (2 of those 4oz tubs)
3cups of mozzarella
1cup parmesan
2cups of half and half or light cream
1/2 cup of parsley fresh
1/4 cup of basil fresh
1/4 tea spoon of crushed black pepper.

cook pasta according to directions.
add all but 1/2 cup of mozzarella and a few pinches of parsley to a big bowl and toss. (that includes the pasta!)
spoon it into a large casserole dish.
bake uncovered at 350f for 20 minutes.
remove, mix a bit and then put the last bit of mozzarella on the top.
bake another 10 minutes or until the top is a little brown.
garnish with left over parsley if you want and its done!!

you can try different spice groupings. im sure some chicken, thyme and sage would make a great addition/change. broccoli and chicken also sound pretty good. many people like to add ham (yuck) to their mac and cheese.

give it a shot! its really easy to make. :)
