My friend Leslie got this recipe out of a Cooking Light magazine about 6 years ago.  (She also gave it the name!) We both make it a lot and always get asked for the recipe so I thought you might enjoy it too! (Someone asked me just last week for it!) It’s a healthier twist on the typical mac and cheese! Kids love it…and so will hubby!
