Mac n' Cheese.........

Today there are so many mac n' cheese recipes that have that ultra gooey cheese sauce. But how many of you remember your Mom's mac n' cheese from the 40's. Yes, I am talking about the vintage recipe for mac n' cheese. Maybe it had less cheese because it was post depression and dairy was rationed because of the war. I remember a macaroni casserole with a white sauce and dotted with cheddar cheese with buttered bread crumbs on top and it was delicious. I am sure it contained far less calories than today's ooey, gooey, cheesy macaroni.
