    Rita P's Note:

    Macaroni and cheese was a favorite dish of Thomas Jefferson. I feel certain Mr. Jefferson would have approved this version.

      I added more cheddar cheese and used part Carnation condensed milk and whole milk for a creamier texture.I also didn't put the crackers on top, but the recipe was still what I was looking for.The recipe was fairly easy to make and very good.

      Really good recipe, Rita. Nice and creamy. I added a pinch of cayenne to the cheese sauce to give it a little kick and, instead of crackers, I used Progresso Italian breadcrumbs for the topping. I'll be making this again. Thanks!

      Didn't really care for this recipe, too much white/flour sauce and not enough cheesy sauce. I guess you just get used to a taste, but I think half the milk/flour and use heavy cream instead of milk. I subbed pippete once I saw the cheese chunks and it held more sauce.
