      be forewarned, this is VERY blue-cheesy, not a classic Cheddar Mac'n'Cheese

      1. For a quick fix, the one in the frozen section of Trader Joe's in awesome.

          It certainly has ricotta in it, which gets a yippee! from this girl.

            VILE!! full of sodium. look at the label for salt content. far too much.

              I'm not exaclty eating mac and cheese for the meals I want to eat healthily. It probably has a lot of fat too, right? ;)

                C'mon - you've already hit on two of the four major food groups - salt, fat, sugar and artificial flavors... I grew up living on this stuff since the 60's and I'm okay... Oh sweet mercy - someone get the paddles - my heart's going into di-fib!!

                all mac and cheese formulations depend primarily on butterfat and sodium.

            2. M&M Soul Food on Crenshaw and MLK Blvd.

              1. The truffled mac & cheese at Blair's in Silverlake is amazing, but new-school (meaning no crispy crust, and they use a variety of white cheeses, not yellow). If you want old-style mac & cheese, try the ones at Luna Park (with or without ham) and Fred 62. O'Bar has lobster mac & cheese - yum.

                1. I'm partial to YardHouse (they have great Happy Hour) and was surprised that their Mac & Cheese was pretty good.
