Kittencal, I had a hard time choosing between this macaroni and cheese recipe and your easy mac and cheese recipe. I ended up using this recipe and I think this is the BEST macaroni and cheese I have ever had! I doubled the recipe and used half-and-half cream. I used a mix of mild and sharp cheddar cheese and for the first time in my life I bought Velveeta which is must for this delicious recipe! I went through over a hundred top-rated mac and cheese recipes here on Recipezaar and as usual I kept coming back to your recipes. I did top this with crushed Ritz crackers. Many thanks to you for posting this wonderful recipe!!!
This was really good. I almost skipped the garlic because I thought it sounded kind of weird, but I am so glad I followed the recipe. Thanks for posting.
I made this for my daughter's graduation party and everyone gave it 5 stars! I did use 5 cups of macaroni and it turned out perfect. Thanks.
Outstanding! My DH loves mac and cheese and has had so many different kinds, he is very picky now, lol. I almost had to fight him to get some of this. I used campanelle pasta becaused that's what I had on hand and tried some Mexican Velveeta which gave it a great little kick. I also added some ham cubes that I had leftover. Very good. Thanks Kitten for yet another winner.
Delicious! I had to make a couple of changes, one was because you can't get Velveeta here so I used have cheese singles and grated cheddar as I read somewhere you could substitute for it this way with cheese sauces. The other change I did was just dried onions instead of onion powder because I only realised when I started I was out of onion powder. It came out really well and both of us loved it.
As usual, Kittencal offers us wonderful recipe! We really liked how creamy it is. My only complaint is that it had a little too much of that fake velveeta flavor. I think next time I will sub some of the velveeta for more cheddar and see what happens. Thanks, once again, Kittencal!!
I made this with fat free milk, and 5 cups of pasta, and it turned out very rich and lovely. I do think it takes more like an hour to make the recipe, 30 minutes prep, 30 minutes baking time. I used 2 dashes of crushed red pepper because I can't find cayenne pepper where I live.
The flavor is good, however, the consistency is not what I thought it would be. It is very thick and my family would not eat it.
After I adjusted the seasonings, this was awesome! It needed another teaspoon ground mustard and another quarter teaspoon red pepper. It's even good warmed up!
