Pasta, oh pasta.  I know I have confessed my love for it before. Waist-lines beware… I can never give up pasta.   Mac and Cheese has to be one of my favorite preparations of pasta. I would eat it every.single.day.  Velveeta mac and cheese? Check.  Buffalo Chicken Mac and Cheese? LOVE.  Seafood Mac and Cheese? sign me up!  The list goes on and on.   Recently I found myself with some rotisserie chicken in the fridge and decided to give BBQ Chicken Mac and Cheese a chance, and it did not disappoint.
