We love mac and cheese! This absolutely bangin' dish was created to satisfy even the most junkfoodiest amongst you. Everyone will like the taste of this dish, whoever they are. This will impress even the staunchest meat-lover!

Derek Sarno of Sarno Bros. Wicked Healthy Food (www.wickedhealthy.com) left us the mushrooms, so we used his clever 'pulling' technique to create this bangin' dish. Enjoy!
