This is excellent mac and cheese. Not dry like a lot that I have tried. Lots of cheese flavor. The sauce took me a while to get all the cheese to melt. Ended up putting it back on the heat to get it smooth. Baking time is perfect. My GD loved it. Thanks for sharing. Made for PAC Fall '08

This was an excellent recipe. I didn't change any of the ingredients. However I did make one change - after making the white sauce and adding/melting the cream cheese and cheddar, I added the process cheese by slices over the macaroni... sprayed dish, layer of macaroni, layer of cheese slices, layer of macaroni, layer of cheese slices, then poured the sauce over all and "stirred" to get the sauce incorporated in the macaroni. Baked as directed. It was so yummy!! I will consider this my go-to.

Holy Cow! this turned out great. Following the directions I thought it was going to be way to much cheese sauce so I kept a little back. (Which made a awesome pretzel dip lol). Will definitely make again. Great Post Cathy!!

I made this last night for the first time. It really is the best macaroni and cheese recipe I'v ever made. It's very thick, gooey and all kinds of "comfort foody." It's the one you are looking for, I promise. :)

The whole family loved this! We've tried many mac & cheese recipes, but this is definitely the best we've had so far.

I've made this recipe twice now--once for my husband, and once for a potluck at work. Both times I received rave reviews. My husband never wants to eat another mac and cheese again, and I've shared the recipe with many people at work. It's extremely creamy and cheesy, and not grainy like a lot of homemade mac and cheese recipes.

excellent. The cream cheese helps keep it very creamy and not dry. I served it at a baby shower and several people said it was the best mac n cheese they had ever had. It was also surprisingly easy.
will definitely use this recipe again!

Such creamy goodness and so easy. I used 2 different types of cheese and added bacon and topped with buttered bread crumbs, so good
