This made a tasty mac & cheese, however it lacked the creaminess I had expected. The flavor was perfect. Having said that, I would suggest reducing the amount of cheese by half. There are 2 1/2 lbs of cheese in this recipe, which unfortunately contributes to a somewhat grainy texture. If I make this again, I'll try it with 1/2 lb of sharp cheddar instead of 1 lb. This makes A LOT of mac & cheese, by the way! Make for Spring PAC 2012.
Nice rich mac 'n 'cheese :) I used large rigatoni tubes, piled in the cheese, and served from the pot .... probably would be nice baked, but deliciously smooth and creamy and very very satisfying!!! Thanks Margie, a lovely recipe, made for PRMR tag game
