Baked Italian Macaroni & Cheese

Baked Italian Mac & Cheese

This recipe is one of my dad’s favorite ways to eat homemade macaroni and cheese. He likes it so much my mom included it in a family cookbook she printed for the Quinn branch of our family in 2013.

It’s a simple dish, full of cheesiness, and it’s baked in the oven, which is a quality of all the best mac & cheeses. Enjoy!
