Tried this last night, it was just as she said. Very creamy and very very good. So far it's the best one I've tried. Very easy to make. I served it as a side dish with Salisbury Steak and green beans.Will definetly make it again.

I tripled the recipe so I could take it to a potluck. I ended up with way too much sauce so I ended up adding another 4 cups of pasta. So next time I need to double the pasta and see if that works. Kids ate this up. Super creamy and cheesy!!

It was pretty good. Although for me, the directions were a little confusing, but I worked it out with the help of other reviews and similar recipes. I will definitely try it again, only I will adjust a few things. I used 16 ozs of cheese and shell macaroni. 2 cups were NOT enough. I doubled it.
