Yum Alert: Pumpkin Mac and Cheese

Written by emilyc

I know it’s only September 1st, but for me, this is when pumpkin season begins. Just like how Christmas begins in November and Halloween is basically right now. To celebrate the advent of pumpkin season, why not whip up some creamy pumpkin mac and cheese? Recipe and image via PBS.

4 cups milk

16 oz grated cheese blend
