  1. Achieving a perfect dusting of Parmesan over rigatoni, or bittersweet chocolate shavings over cappuccino. Pass the grater around the table so you don’t have to worry about people touching the block of cheese (or making a mess) as they serve themselves. Rotary graters are also faster and more knuckle-friendly than other kinds, since the cylindrical grater plate never gets close to fingers.

  2. This reminds me of senmthiog I’ve made a few times that I love. It’s a store-bought pizza crust, with sauce spread over it (BBQ, marinara or whatever you prefer) and leftover homemade mac n cheese crumbled on top. A little extra shredded cheese and some time in the oven and you have awesome mac n pizza.

  3. Oh my goodness I have five grandchildren that will love this!!
    I invite you to share this yumminess at my Thursday blog hop ( starts Weds. night 8PM MST)

  4. We tried these for dinner tonight- yummy! Sadly, no matter what we tried, I couldn’t get the mac n cheese to stay in any kind of a shape that would transfer onto the bread. In the end, I think next time we’ll just spoon some warm mac n cheese on top and skip that step. Thanks for the yummy recipe!
