Macaroni N' Cheese is a classic that doesn't really require introduction. This one is easy and quick, but a bit "more" than your out-of-the-box versions. To please one-and-all!
Macaroni & Cheese is one of those comfort food dishes that everyone seems to love (Unless they are lactose intolerant!). This one is fairly simple, yet can get complex flavours.
Note that I use no salt at all, as the combination of cheese and bacon is plenty to salt up the dish. I also use cayenne pepper rather than regular pepper, as it has a bit more flavour. The intent is not to make the dish spicy, however.
