Made this as directed. It came out pretty sticky and cheese never did melt all the way. Had to add much more milk because it kept getting so dry.

What a terrific, easy recipe! I normally spend a ton of time on a baked macaroni and cheese with 7 different cheeses...this was SO easy, and I honestly think my family enjoyed it more. I quadrupled the recipe to bring to a church function, and it came out great! Definately will make again...thanks!

This is so good! I used cavatappi noodles so I doubled the rest of the ingredients. It is so creamy and good! Thank you for sharing.
