Very easy. I too used sharp cheddar as that's all we ever have on hand. I cut the recipe in half, although I didn't measure the macaroni and ended up with more sauce than I should have for the amount of noodles I cooked. So it was extra saucy, but still very good! Quick and easy dinner. Thanks!

Very good, even my picky DH liked it. It is very quick and easy to put together. I used sharp cheddar because that's what I had on hand and I cut the recipe in half. It was enough to feed 3 adults and a 2 year old, and have some leftovers. We all enjoyed this dish and I will definately make it again. Thanks so much for an easy and tasteful recipe.
