Baked Mac and Cheese image

Velveeta Baked Macaroni & Cheese image

Mac and cheese is one of the all-time comfort foods. When my kids' taste finally outgrew the boxed stuff, I came up with this recipe to satisfy their need for cheese (my daughter, in particular, is a cheese junkie). I'm sure this recipe contains influences from my Mother and Grandmother. It goes great with other comfort food staples like meatloaf, roast, pork roast, etc.

A friend of mine sent this recipe to me when I got my first apartment, because she knows how much I hate cooking! It's really easy -- even I can make it -- and tastes great. I'm not sure where she found the recipe, but it included the note 'Good source of protein, vitamin A, B group vitamins, calcium.'
