    Hootenanny's Note:

    Straightforward mac n cheese made w/ a white sauce and using plain yogurt in the recipe and reserved cheese topping. I left out salt on this and let ea. person add their own salt and extra pepper at the table. Also, I freshly grate my nutmeg and use NY State Cheddar. This is a starting point for mac and cheese. Some embellish it with tomato, other cheeses, onion, green or sweet red peppers, buttered bread crumbs or cracker topping etc. I adapted it from "Now....Your'e Cooking" website.

      This was a good mac and cheese dish. Very easy to make. There is a light tanginess from the yogurt. I made the recipe exactly as written, but I still prefer a mix of cheddar and Velveeta cheeses. Made for PAC Spring 2013.

      Great mac & cheese recipe! Took it to a Super Bowl party and the bowl was practically licked clean!

      Nothing basic about this mac-n-cheese - it's terrific! I liked the addition of the yogurt - made it nice and creamy with a bit of a zip. We enjoyed this as a great meat-free meal - thanks for posting your recipe! Made for Spring PAC 2009
