Southern Style Macaroni & Cheese

I could have sworn I had posted about this, but apparently not. Raising a toddler and a 2 week long visit by family gets in the way of those plans I guess.  This recipe is so NOT low FODMAP for those sensitive to lactose or gluten, but to me is so totally worth it anyway. I am definitely making this again and it will be on the table at Thanksgiving. I’m already drooling in anticipation I love cheese that much. I used half cheddar and half vermont white cheddar for my cheese and cavatapi pasta because who doesn’t like big, thick noodles for their mac and cheese. I also put panko breadcrumbs on half to keep everyone happy.
