I found this recipe to be a bit sticky for my tastes. The taste was fine, but the texture put me off a bit. It does reheat, well, though. Thank you for posting!

I use this same recipe at my house. It is delicious and the only one my husband craves! I like to melt a little butter and mix it with italian bread crumbs to make a crunchy topping. I also add 1/2 cup more milk as I think it can get too thick otherwise :-)

I made this last night to give it a try and it was very good. It was a bit more work than my usual mac & cheese recipe. Everyone ate this great but my regular is a bit easier and a bit creamier but I thank you this was the first baked mac & cheese I've tried.
