This is a great basic baked mac and cheese. I did find that the cheese was too much for the noodles called for so I cooked more noodles before baking. Everything came out perfect in 20 minutes from the oven. Thanks for sharing a great go-to recipe. Made & reviewed through Bargain Basement tag game.
