Who doesn't enJOY a bowl of macaroni and cheese now and then? Yummo!
We've always liked eating macaroni and cheese, although I admit that my husband and children have preferred the boxed version instead of the homemade.
What is wrong with them? (I really prefer the homemade version!)
We make sure we only plan one meal per week to include pasta...and that's not easy for us because we could easily have pasta several evenings a week. But - we don't.
Here's our delicious, "30 minutes to the table" recipe for Low-Carb Macaroni and Cheese - that's even okay for the grownups!

Bring 2 quarts water to boil in a large pot for the macaroni. Stir in 1-1/2 tsp. salt and the macaroni and cook according to package directions (cook no longer than package directs).
Meanwhile, mix together the eggs, 3 oz. of the cream, the mustard mixture, Tabasco (or hot sauce), 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Whisk well.
Drain the cooked pasta and return it to the pot. Set the pot over low heat and stir in the butter until melted.
Stir in the egg mixture and half of the cheddar cheese. Continue to cook over low heat, gradually stirring in the remaining cream, water, and cheddar cheese, until the mixture is hot and creamy, about 5 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
