On medium heat, in the same pot, melt butter, add milk, cheese mix from the box and stir well. When well blended, drop the Cabot cheddar cheese and mix again till melted. Drop the cooked macaroni mixture and serve hot!

  • FYI: TVP is a vegetarian meat substitute made from soy, it comes in dried granules and can be used like ground meat when rehydrated. It stands for Textured Vegetable Protein. - 3/16/11
