    Mims & Squims's Note:

    The cheese sauce should be made a day before, but other than that, this is a quick & easy recipe that tastes a lot like Kraft Macaroni. I like it because it can be made with no food coloring or preservatives, and I can add other cheeses for a different flavor. Since I can't eat the "real stuff," this makes a good substitute.

      The flavour of this was quite tasty. I used low fat cheddar which took the fat content down quite a bit. I took a couple of stars off though :( . One because the instructions were confusing in step 9 and beyond. I wasn't sure if I was to use all of the sauce and if I was, it's only 3 or so cups of cooked pasta, so that's a lot of sauce! I ended up tripling the pasta for the amount of sauce and it was about right. The other star was because it was an awful lot of work. It did taste good, but I don't think I would go to all of the trouble for it again. Made for My 3 Chefs tag. Thanks! :)
