Shavuot is clearly the season of sharing.
A generous-spirited customer shared this miraculous mac 'n cheese recipe with me, I shared it with several customers and friends, who in turn delightedly passed it on.
With all this sharing going on, it seems only fair that I share it with ALL of Meatland's loyal customers, because that's what virtual friends do.
It's not for nothing that I chose the adjective 'miraculous' to describe this dish as it really IS amazing that it takes so little effort, and so few ingredients, to produce a consistently great, family-friendly result.

200 grams cheddar cheese, grated
