Easy and very kids friendly, Member pinay70

this is an easy recipe when you don't have enough time in making food. my kids loved it. i tweaked it a bit by adding extra 1/2 cup of cheese for more cheesier version. when it gets a bit thick just add more milk on a low heat whisking it until the consistency is to your liking.
