      This was such a delicious dish! It is very rich and decadent! We used 1 cup heavy cream/3 cups 2% milk in place of the half and half, and it turned out great. Thanks for yet another winning recipe!

      Very good and an interesting version of mac n' cheese using different cheeses. We skipped the tomato but really enjoyed this macaroni and cheese. Thanks for sharing!
