Caribbean Jerk Mac n' Cheese

It's the ultimate in comfort food.....
tender macaroni smothered in a rich,
creamy cheese sauce.
No wonder it's been a favorite of kids and
adults alike for so many years.

Macaroni and Cheese is so versatile.
It's a great way to use up half empty boxes of
pasta, blocks of cheese and left-over cooked
ham, turkey, bacon and tuna.
