I made this twice in the last few weeks. It's very good and creamy, and the mustard adds a nice color as well as flavor. The first time didn't work out too well for me. The sauce was too hot, and the pan was still over the burner when I added the cheese, and I since learned not to do that. The second time I only used about a teaspoon of mustard for our taste. I also added the sauce to the macaroni, and then added the cheese, 1/2 cup at a time, to the macaroni mixture. This worked out very well. I only used 2 cups of extra sharp cheese in the macaroni, and then covered the top with a layer of cheese and put it under the broiler for a melted/brown/bubbly cheesy top. Everyone enjoyed this a lot.

This was ok. The mustard was a little overpowering.

Great recipe! I'm always looking for a good, fast mac and cheese recipe for lunch! I took the advice of others and used Dijon mustard. I halved the recipe and it worked perfectly! I love how creamy this is! Thanks!

This is how I have always made my mac and cheese, and we prefer it to that boxed stuff. I occasionally switch up the cheese as to what I have in the fridge. Thanks for posting it now if I am out my husband will have the directions but I just make it from memory.

It's very basic, but tastes sooooo great and has a great creaminess. I LOVED the mustard flavor (used Dijon)! I used close to the whole 2 cups of (2%) milk. As it sets it thickens nicely yet remains moist and creamy. I used a blend of cheddar and montery jack cheeses. This really doesn't take much longer to make than the boxed mix, but is WAY better! Thanx for posting. We'll enjoy this recipe often.

This is what happened. I had a pot of water going on the stove with dinosaur pasta going because my kids said they wanted pasta and sauce for lunch. But as the pasta was cooking my 6 year old said "Wouldn't it be good if we could make this into mac & cheese mom?" So I went looking and came across this dish and was able to make it in the remaining time for cooking the pasta. I used a little less then 1 tbsp. butter and whole wheat pasta plus skim milk. As I got ready to put the cheese in my 4 year old had a little accident with it (it went everywhere!) so I had to be creative with the cheese. I used about a cup of marble cheddar, a few tbsp. of fat free mozarella, and two sandwhich slices. Hey, it worked! The kids loved it and it was super easy. Thanks.

The consistency was great, but the mustard flavor was a little overpowering for us. I think next time I would use less mustard. Thanks!

This was popular with everyone - the one year old, the 4 year old, the adult and the dog that the one year old was feeding when Mum wasn't looking! Ours needed some extra seasoning as it is a bit bland but this could be done at the table. Had no problems with the white sauce component.
