Made this recipe for the family tonight and it didn't get good reviews at all. I added some minced garlic and onion and it still was extremely bland and greasy. Unfortunately, there were no requests to make this one again. My daughter actually requested that I "stick to the box" Mac n Cheese.
I saw Andi's pic this morning and went straight to the kitchen to make this. I normally prefer a more creamy mac & cheese, but this is pretty darn good, and way easy! I used a store brand shredded cheese and I found it made the dish a tad greasy (not that this stopped me from scarfing down a whole plate!). I'd use a better brand of cheese next time, and there will be a next time! Thanks for a keeper! Crabby
You are brilliant.....this is a "come on in!" dish that begs friends to stop over and sit down and relax with while they devour and clean their plates. Easy to put together, and had everything right in the cupboard. Easy to follow directions to lead to a bute of a Mac&Cheese. I followed the recipe as written and had it in the oven bubbling away in less time then it takes to put together the Bechamel method. Sauce came out perfectly not to thick or thin, although I halved this recipe. I added 2 % reduced fat cheese, and regular breadcrumbs mixed with Italian seasonings. Great for a evening when children have activities, or freezing for later in the week. Next time I might add some Tabasco, because we just happen to adore the kick. Thanks so much! Will make again.
