Pasta Week: Easy Extra Creamy Shells & Cheese

Yum
Easy Extra Creamy Mac & Cheese - better than the boxed stuff! #recipe #pasta

I struggle to find good homemade mac & cheese recipes and I was hoping this one would be delicious, even though it's not completely homemade....and it totally was! I am hoping to find and test out a homemade cheddar cheese soup recipe soon. If any of you know a good one, leave me a comment!
