mac and cheese

I grew up eating very little macroni and cheese. So I never had had that to die for mom's homemade macaroni and cheese recipe. However, in the last year, I have really gotten into trying to find and make a new recipe every couple months. So far Eli has kindly and graciously dismissed every recipe. In the last couple months, it seems like fate has pointed me in the direction of trying Panera's new macaroni and cheese. Eli told me about, a friend mentioned it, and I even heard a stranger (while waiting for my breakfast sandwich in Philadelphia) raving about it. Therefore, on the way home from Philly the other day I tried it. Very yummy. The white cheadder is amazing.
Now I am dying to try and recreate it myself. Bad news. The recipe is not on the Panera website. Ideas, anyone?

It never occurred to me to make Mac and cheese from scratch! Who in the heck is Panera? Is it a food chain, a grocery store label? It sure does look good! Saren and Shawni got us going on Annie's mac and cheese from the store shelves because I think it uses white cheddar. Try allrecipes.com or foodnetwork.com. We miss you guys!

Haven't tried it yet, but we'll let you know when we do. We totally agree on how good it is....although we were a little ticked at the price & portion of the take-out large.
