      I used reduced-fat mild cheddar instead due to the fact that I'm cheap and the mild cheddar was on sale, and I think that next time I will spring for the sharp. The sharp cheddar would have added a considerable amount of flavor that I found lacking when using mild, and would have made this a 5-star rating. Other than that, I really liked the recipe. In fact, I liked it better than full-fat versions of baked macaroni and cheese that I've made, because the lower fat content cuts back on the cheese's tendency to separate and get greasy. This, on the other hand, comes out nice and creamy. You have to be a little patient with the roux, though, since it's kind of hard to make a good cream sauce with this little fat. You have to add the milk VERY GRADUALLY at the beginning and make certain that the milk, flour, and margarine, are completely smooth. I'll definitely make this again, as well as experiment with add-ins, different cheeses, etc. Two thumbs-up!
