Cheesy Noodles

BY : PUBLISHED : August 25th, 2014 UPDATED: August 5th, 2022

This recipe makes a lot so I suggest cutting it in half or making the whole thing if you're having a party. The consistency is that of nacho cheese so you're not limited to using it in pasta, go a little cheese wild and get creative.
