When my brother was dating his now wife, in college, he made this for her. She loved it so much that she made it for her roommates for dinner. They loved it so much that one of them made it for dinner EVERY week!
The leftovers are also tasty. The boys will happily eat them. The key when reheating is adding a little bit of milk to help give it some sauce and adding more cheese. Stir, reheat, stir and serve.
