This is so easy. My kids always want macaroni and cheese, and I don't always have a box on hand. It does taste and look better, and doesn't take long at all. It would make two small servings - good for young kids, but if you have two hungry people eating it, they would probably not be filled up.

What a hidden gem this is!! Okay it does not replace oven baked, but you could put this in the oven to crisp up the top (if you want to wait that long). What it does do is replace that blue box! I'm thinking that it probably takes less time to make this than boxed and diffently tastes better. It makes a small portion only serves one in this house, maybe two if it were a side dish. But, in this house Mac and Cheese stands alone and is the main course. I used large elbow and would not use that again, also would cook the mac a tad longer, but maybe using smaller elbow/mac it wouldn't need to cook longer. Instead of worcestershire I used Tobasco and added a few large pinches of parmesean cheese. I will diffently make this again! Thank you Chef #1205272 for a recipe that I will pass on to my college daughter.

I will rate this 5 stars for the sauce...the proportions were spot on, and the sauce got nicely thickened and was very tasty. The noodles took longer than anticipated in the microwave, then they had to sit on the counter cooling off while I cooked the sauce. In future, I will cook the noodles on the stovetop while preparing the sauce in the microwave. Please note....I used a two-cup measure to prepare the sauce, and it boiled over. Use a larger cup, as was written in the recipe if I had only been wise enough to obey! This recipe will be used again and again.
