What a great recipe!! The folks I made it for absolutely loved it!! I didn't get to try it until the following day, I will probably increase the amount of cream substitute the next time I make it. As well, I will probably just mix the milk and flour before adding it to the butter next time. I think the lighter butter made the roux turn into a ball instead of smoothing out for me. The cottage cheese and milk for the cream I thought was brilliant, I will probably use that in other recipes. Thanks!!

Best mac and cheese that has been made in my house! Everyone enjoyed it and it was all gone in one sitting! Will double the recipe next time for left overs.

Made this for the mac-&-cheese-lovin' couple next door & they did go for it in a big way! I made only one change in that I used toasted/dried crumbs from some nutty, whole grain bread that I always have on hand! Then, holding back with a small 2-serving casserole for right here, your recipe passed our taste-test with flying colors! Many thanks for sharing it with us!

Hold the phone! Using this recipe I just quite possibly made the best mac & cheese EVER! Instead of cheddar I used a mix of Romano, Asiago and Parmesan cheeses. I also roasted red peppers in the oven at the same time, side by side; same temp, for 20 minutes (turning once). While the mac & cheese finished up for ten minutes, I peeled, seeded and cut the peppers, then used them as a topping to the mac & cheese. It was AMAZING!!! Thanks for this perfectly versatile recipe!

This is really good! I've always used my Grandmother's recipe for mac n cheese and it's similar to this one, but she uses egg, milk and cheddar. I think I prefer this recipe. Thanks!

This was my first time making a rue and I did not feel that the directions were clear or detailed enough. My mom had to step in and show me the proper way to make the sauce. Also, I could not find an 8 ounce package of pasta, only a 16 ounce. So I only used half the package and there is noooooo way this is enough pasta. Now, the sauce is done and I'm waiting for the other half to cook. The sauce tastes good though.
