Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese

Smoked Gouda Mac and Cheese This is a marvelously smooth mac and cheese with a bit of a bite. My family loves this. I got the idea from a recipe made on a popular cooking show, and adapted it to my own recipe and tastes. Delicious contrast if served with a ‘sweet’ main dish.
