Notes

This is a macaroni that is great for chilly evenings when you want something hearty and cheesy. There is hot sauce (as much as you like - and we like a fair amount) which makes it a little zingy and tasty. A version of this recipe appeared in the Washington Post, which is what this one is a bit modified from.
