    Deb Wolf's Note:

    Gourmet comfort food. Super yummy, impressive enough to serve guests, uniquely decadent. This is not your average macaroni and cheese. Perfect along side simply prepared chicken or chops.

      I was so glad to find this recipe, as I had a container of cheese spread sitting in my fridge leftover from a dinner party. It was basically full, and I was worried it wouldn't get eaten. I made your recipe essentially as-written, but I used whole-grain noodles instead of regular egg noodles and vegan bacon (personal preferences that don't usually affect overall flavor). I had to use a little more milk to get the sauce to a saucy consistency, but I'd say no more than 1/2-3/4 cup extra. If I made this again, I think I'd also add a few more onions... or maybe the one I used just wasn't large enough? Some roasted garlic would also be a nice addition, but not necessary. In general this was a unique, and really tasty combination - thank you for the idea!
