Mac & Cheese Soup / How to make Creamy Macaroni Cheese Soup

Just the mention of Mac n Cheese brings a huge smile on the faces of my kids. Many years ago, when my daughter was a toddler, my sister bought ready-to-make packets of Mac n Cheese from US. That was the first time my kids had it and it’s been their favorite ever since. I tried to replicate the dish and the one I made, was appreciated by them. Thank God!!! Till now I have made it countless times. One day, it dawned on me that why don’t I try converting their favorite Mac n Cheese into a soup. Guess what??? It was a hit. The elbow macaroni floating in a creamy, cheesy sauce tastes divine. They just slurped the whole bowl in no time.

Here it is… my kid’s favorite Mac & Cheese Soup!!
