I love this- Martha's mac & cheese recipe is my favorite dish. I make it every Christmas and I look forward to it. I even spend the extra $$ on aged cheddar cheese. Quite expensive to make when you use aged cheddar and gruyere cheese, but worth it. One note though: eat it the first time through- the leftovers are ok, but not creamy at all. The macaroni soaks up all the sauce. :(

Made this dish w/ high expectations(LOVE mac and cheese-and its Martha's, right?)-Nobody here liked it at all. It didn't have the 'tang' I was hoping for, and looking for. I was looking for a southern type of mac and cheese that has a great burned 'skin' on top--anyone???

This is by far the best mac & cheese I have ever eaten. It was a winner with my family - even my picky eater that likes velveeta mac & cheese said it was excellent. Just a note...I made with 3 cups sharp white cheddar and 2 cups 2% fat sharp cheddar. Also, used Fleischmans margarine instead of butter.

I found this recipe on Martha's website originally. Killer stuff. This is the perfect dish for using up those bits and scraps of cheese just hanging out in the fridge. My last rendition included extra sharp cheddar, pepperjack, gruyere, aged gouda, pecorino, and jarlsberg. It's also a nice touch to add a bit of white truffle oil to the buttered dish, just before filling it with the pasta. This freezes well, uncooked.

You may think you know macoroni and cheese. But until you've had Mama Martha's ultimate comfort food, you haven't been saved. This is the way to make mac and cheese. You will never be the same.
