Top Review by HokiesMom

This is a terrific basic recipe for a large group mac and cheese. I followed your instructions completely and only added a bit of chopped up broccoli crowns as I was serving it to a group who needs all the extra nutrition they can get with veggies. Perfectly finished as explained in the instructions. Thanks for posting a recipe that I did not have to do any conversions so I could have 24 servings of the same dish! Made for the Bargain Basement tag game.
