Pepperoni Pizza Mac and Cheese

My family LOVES Mac and Cheese!

I had A LOT of cheeses and some pepperoni that needed to be used in my fridge and this is what I cam up with!  It was so good and my hubby really enjoyed this fun change from the traditional mac and cheese I usually serve.

Definitely give this a try! It makes for a yummy side dish!

      I attempted this recipe last week for dinner. For anyone that is making this, be aware that you will need much more milk than 1/2 cup; without it, your sauce will not be smooth, it will be the consistency of play-doh. Likewise, I had to add in about 1/2 tsp. of garlic powder because it was bland tasting otherwise. With those substitutions, it was a great side dish to our grilled burgers and side of green beans.

          Chelsey thanks for your input on the milk. I couldn’t remember how much milk it took thats why I said to add more than needed, I updated the recipe with you feedback! I actuality think the addition of garlic powder would be super yummy! Good call!
