From the Chef :Whenever I see a buffet spread, I like to hit up the mac 'n' cheese first to make sure I don't run out of valuable plate real estate. This mac 'n' cheese dish has a hint of paprika, giving it a smoky flavor. A fun twist on the traditional version I remember from being a kid.

This is a nice and simple mac and cheese recipe! I would recommend adding in some bread crumbs on top for a little crunch since the velvetta definitely adds to the creaminess of this dish.

Simple, delicious, and comforting. That's all you need for a great mac and cheese recipe.
