WOW!!! This is a great Mac and Cheese recipe. I have never eaten at a Luby's so I can't compare but we really liked this dish. I hope to try your Dessert Cheese Ball next (it looks sinful). Yep, the Top 100 better look out because here comes TwinkDawg!!!! :-)

If someone makes this and it's bland, then you obviously need to start salting the water that the macaroni (or any pasta for any dish) boils in... problem solved!

This is perfect Luby's macaroni and cheese! My kids and whole family gobbled it up. All I need now is some fried okra and I'd be in Luby's heaven. Thank you so much, Miss Annie, for posting, I have a feeling this one will be requested often! By the way, the best Luby's in the world is located at 288/MacGregor in Houston. The women there are some fine Southern cooks and put all other Luby's to shame!

Total comfort food on a cold snowy night. Thanks Paula, this is great stuff. Made as written, except I chopped up my cheese rather than shredded it (it was thick sliced deli cheese). I will make this again without changing a thing.

My whole family enjoyed this version of macaroni and cheese. We loved the smoothness of the sauce with the american cheese. I loved the unique idea of using the dried milk, which gave it a glossy texture. Thank you for posting this great recipe. Roxygirl in Colorado

I had been looking for my favorite macaroni and cheese from school and this has hit closest to the mark. Yummy! Thank you.

This was so creamy and rich, just like Luby's. I made it exactly according to the recipe. Thanks for sharing this recipe.

The worst! This is NOT Luby's Cafeteria Mac! Gross! The directions might as well read melt a brick of nasty Velveeta in with macaroni. That is it! Bland, sticky, disgusting garbage!
