Mushroom Macaroni and Cheese

Mushroom Macaroni and Cheese

This delicious creamy mushroom macaroni and cheese recipe will be sure to impress at your dinner table. Regular macaroni and cheese is delicious too, but there is so much flavor that can be yielded from fresh fried mushrooms. The sauce is velvety smooth and cheesy with notes of mushroom flavor popping through, yet still has that nostalgic macaroni and cheese taste. My middle child is obsessed with mushrooms, so I try to add them to most meals that I cook. I think it is safe to say this one was one of her favorites.

From my cookbook to your table, I hope you enjoy this tasty pasta as much as my family and I do.
