Comfort food at its best. This is a great dish to have on a cold winter night. I used medium shells and doubled the amount to 2 cups (uncooked). I still had plenty of yummy, gooey cheese sauce. I used the sharp and mild cheddar cheeses, but substituted the extra-sharp cheddar cheese with Velveeta. Made for December, 2008 Aussie/NZ Swap.
This was a super easy and good recipe. I fixed it as written. I felt like it was still lacking something but just couldn't put my finger on it. Maybe a bit more seasoning. It was a big hit with my kids. Thanks so much for sharing. Made for The I recommend tag game. June 2010
Oh WOW, this Mac and Cheese recipe is AWESOME!!!! It is cheesy, creamy and makes you come back for more and more and more. :) It is so delish! I used whole spelt pasta and fat-reduced cheese and it still came out super creamy and cheesy. Mmmm! THANK YOU SO MUCH for sharing this awesome recipe with us! Ill definitely make it again!

Loved this mac & cheese! The onion and garlic gave it the extra flavor. I agree about using the varied cheddar cheeses. After reading the previous review, I, too, used 2 cups of (uncooked) macaroni and it was still plenty moist and cheesey. Thanx for sharing!
