      This is good -- used more cheese than called for (can't have too much cheese!). Used shredded cheese instead of cubed just because that is what I had and it worked great -- melted nicely.

      This mac and cheese has good flavour. I used whole wheat pasta and followed the recipe as written. For some reason the cubed cheese didn't melt into the casserole, even the next day when I reheated it. The cheese stayed as little cheese chunks throughout. Next time I think I'll add the cheese to the milk mixture so as to make a cheese sauce before adding it to the cooked pasta.

      so so good (i omitted the breadcrumbs and it was still delicious) i did everything fat free (milk, cheese, etc.) and did extra calclium enriched noodles. Super healthy and wayy better than the boxed version!
