I loved the consistency of the sauce, but it didn't seem quite cheesy enough for me. Next time I will probably use more cheddar. And the bread crumbs burned after about 2 minutes under the broiler, but that is probably the fault of my oven. Overall, this is a very, very good recipe!
It was a very solid mac and cheese recipe. I used less cheese and more noodles than suggested and still felt that it was more than creamy enough. The mustard adds a nice punch of flavor with the cayenne pepper.
We followed this recipe, however, the sauce was thinner and runny. I just didn't get the power punch of the cheese in this.
A winner! I split the recipe in half and used penne pasta for th fun of it. This doesn't take too long with bread crumbs (a staple in our house since we have a bread machine) and pre-shredded cheese. We will make again and again!
I discovered this recipe last year and my friends and family can't get enough of this. This mac & cheese is made almost entirely on the stove and the sauce never breaks like some that you bake in the oven. This is pure comfort.
My granddaughter asked me to make some mac n cheese for her and her brother. I wanted to try something new, so I decided on this recipe. They ate like little piggies and even went back for a 2nd bowl! My GD said, "Nana, this is the best stuff"! I have to agree it was really delicious! Thank you for sharing this recipe with us Marie!
