This recipe is based on the recipe from the original 100 Days of Real Food book. We have made it a few times and have gotten the recipe how we like it. If you haven’t gotten the recipe book, though, I highly recommend it! After making this recipe, and knowing how much better it is for my family, I would never go back to boxed macaroni again.
