Introduction

I got this idea from a internet newsletter. However the one in the newsletter just didn't appeal to me. I knew that JoAnna had a really good Mac Salad that started like Mac and Cheese. So here is my frankenrecipe were I pieced together Jo's awesome Mac Salad, and what I thought would make a really neat autumn comfort style Mac and Cheese dish.
