Macaroni and Cheese with White Sauce – Pasta Italiano

This Macaroni and Cheese or the famous Mac ‘n’ Cheese recipe is traditionally an Italian dish. Personally I love the flavour and taste of this dish, and tried to make this super yummy recipe with a comparatively simple way. It may not be the traditional manner, but the taste is exactly the same. If you can add some black olives and chicken chunks to this recipe, it tastes exactly like Dominos Pasta Italiano. So try this super yummy and popular dish at your home by following few easy steps.
