Thanks for your comment. Don't forget to share!

Even though the selection of cheeses here would make a different version of mac and cheese for sure, I guess you could use the muffin tin for any mac and cheese you prepare. A great idea when you need to offer single serving size items.

These are just adorable if nothing else. I have never used the ditalini pasta before and after a google search I just see it is a smaller pasta that will be suitable for the muffin cups. I like the idea of individuality, but my family heaps the mac cheese so this would be something to present on a buffet for a special event.
