This mac and cheese is very creamy and cheesy. Use your biggest skillet/frying pan for this. My DH said this was the best mac and cheese he ever had! It is high in fat, though, so if you are on a low fat diet, or are watching your calorie intake, then avoid; otherwise, enjoy! I will definitely be making this again. The recipe is a keeper!

This was a great & fast dinner! I just added scallops in with the onion and garlic to cook since they weren't already cooked. This is definitely going to be a go to meal on nights when I don't have much time. Has potential for many variations. Thanks for sharing!

This was very good! I used a mixture of sharp cheddar and monterey jack. I added 1/4 t dried thyme and 1/2 t old bay, 1/4 t dry mustard and left out the garlic since I was out. I used elbow macaroni with it, but really would have preferred linguini or spaghetti for presentation. What I would do differently next time is saute the scallops in another pan and pour off the liquid as it overpowered the cheese sauce for our tastes. I might also consider adding some parmesan for a 3 cheese sauce.

This dish was amazing! I suggested this to my mother for tonight's dinner and she said this was the best recipe I've gotten off of Recipezaar. We used cheddar and mozzarella and a tiny bit of Velveeta for texture and it was amazing. :) Also substituted shell macaroni pasta for the penne. :) Definite crowd-pleaser, my sister and I (both teenagers) loved it :)
