Three-Cheese Spicy Mac

Where I come from, there’s usually a couple of pans/dishes of mac and cheese as part of each holiday food spread.

While some deem it as an unimpressive mixture of noodles and cheese, for me mac and cheese is a decadent comfort food that warms my soul, and transports me to a place of nostalgic solace.

This holiday season, or whenever you feel like it, enjoy this spicy three-cheese mac and share with your loved ones.
