I had to give this five stars because my partner and son absolutely adored it! Even when they had eaten the lot they were still asking for more, and later that night my partner asked me to make another one! ha ha ha! I used my own macaroni cheese recipe, and I accidentally added a chopped clove of garlic to it (I'd put the garlic and grated cheese next to each other and as I added the cheese to the milk to make the cheese sauce I managed to scoop the garlic in too!) but it actually tasted really good! Might do that in future for regular macaroni cheese! I also added around a teaspoon each of cumin, oregano, and cajun seasoning to the chicken soup which gave it a nice rich flavour. Plus, as well as grated cheddar cheese, I also used edam, which went all gooey and stringy. Thank you very much for such a great recipe, will certainly make it in future :o)
