Cheesy Noodles

BY : PUBLISHED : August 25th, 2014 UPDATED: August 18th, 2021

This recipe makes a lot so I suggesting cutting it in half or make 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 pastas, go a little cheese wild and get creative.
