      I needed to make a small serving of mac n cheese for my dd who is sick today and was out of the box mix. I made this recipe using sharp cheddar cheese and the sauce turned out nice, but needed some other added flavor. I tried a little onion powder after the fact and it seemed tastier. I don't know - just needs something. My dd wasn't crazy aobut it either. I found that 1 ounce of pasta was too little for the amount of sauce. I ended up using 4 ounces.

      This was quite tasty. Nice and creamy, easy to prepare. I wasn't sure of the amount of macaroni to use (the recipe says 1 ounce, which seems wrong), so I used 3 cups of dried pasta. I think next time I will use an extra cup of shredded cheese, because we love the stuff! Thanks for sharing!
