Wow!! Major comfort food at our house. We had this last week for a quick and easy supper. A complete hands down hit with me and the whole family. The cheese sauce is very rich and creamy, I could eat it right out of the pot. Thanks Nurse Di for another winner.

I was so glad to find this recipe. My mom used to make this for my brother and me when we would have a snow day and get to stay home from school. This tasted so good. Very rich and cheesy as expected. My husband and I thought it was excellent and will be making this regularly. Thanks.
