This may not be the norm, but Feta Mac ‘N Cheese is what Greek moms made for us growing up in our household. We never had cheddar as a cheese choice.  Besides, it’s Feta Friday and all of you Feta Fans out there, can eat anything with Feta, and I can guarantee you this is a tangy pasta mouthful you won’t forget. Try adding olives, red and green peppers, mushrooms, or fresh tomatoes for additional flavor. This was selected from my long list of comfort foods! You may also want to serve this with a big Greek Horiatiki salad. If you’re not familiar with Feta cheese, it’s a goat cheese found in all Greek dishes. It has a tangy and sour flavor, that enhances many of the vegetables in the Greek Diet. Make sure you buy Feta in  brine, for freshness. Do not by pre-crumbled, it’s too dry. This is my choice, in brine and in a reusable container. You can purchase this online, Dodoni Greek Feta.

After experimenting with the two pastas, one elbow and one penny pasta (the Greek choice), I preferred the elbow pasta ( on left side) for a more enjoyable bite.
