One of BP’s favorite dishes is his aunt Betty’s baked macaroni and cheese. I still haven’t been able to attain aunt Betty’s level of perfection, but this recipe comes close, and since I had Velveeta leftover from the cheese souffle pudding, I thought I’d make this for him.

BP is a connoisseur of macaroni and cheese, and since I don’t generally eat it, I believe him when he says it tastes good. The best part of this recipe: it’s all in one dish. There is no need to boil the noodles first. Love that!
