Natalie's Mac and cheese

Submitted by: NATBAER

Introduction

My favorite not at all low-fat macaroni and cheese. You can use white wine instead of cream sherry, but the sherry makes it extra special. I serve this as the main dish, but you can make it a side for less fat and calories. My favorite not at all low-fat macaroni and cheese.
