Mac 'n' cheese doesn't really need an upgrade, but that's not going to stop us from trying. And we have to say, after tasting this sweet potato mac 'n' cheese recipe, we are very glad that we did.

This fall-inspired version of a classic dish is comfort food at its best. It features everything that you love about traditional mac 'n' cheese. It's cheesy, it's gooey, it's got a crispy breadcrumb topping. But it also gets a nutritional and flavor boost from a favorite fall veggie: sweet potatoes.

We love the fluffy texture and sweet flavor that this ingredient adds. It gives the whole dish a new and intriguing flavor, while sacrificing none of the irresistible qualities of the classic casserole.

Why are we still talking about it? It's time to try it!
