      I love this and so do my kids. We've made it three or four times in the last month. Faster and easier than the packaged noodles and sauce...and it tastes so much better. The one thing I did eventually do was saute the garlic in 1 T. of butter before mixing everything else to cook the raw flavor out of it. Aside from that, spectacular as written. Thanks for a great recipe!

      We loved this and will definitely have it again. We only had Mexican cheese so we used that. I'll use Cheddar next time.

      I agree the water was a clever thing to do to prevent the cheese from sticking. Totally amazing, and a nice way to enjoy a one dish meal. I love chees and pasta and incorporating them both together was a lot better than making a cheese sauce for the pasta.
