This was very easy to make and my family loved it - especially my 6 yr old. Because the sauce was a little thin after everything was melted, I mixed everything and baked it at 350 for about 20-30 minutes. It turned out great.

I tried the recipe twice. The first time it came out quite plain. The second time was very dry, but still tasted nice with pasta sauce!! :)

This tasted just like macaroni and cheese. We found the sauce to be very very thin so we added more noodles. Next time I'd take Paige's suggestion and bake it.
