I'm not a fan of the blue box stuff and have never made mac and cheese before so I decided to try this recipe(because of the picture!). I used gruyere cheese in place of the swiss(used what I had on hand) and that was the only change to the recipe. It was easy to make, rich, cheesy and delish! Thank you.

This was so good. Creamy and cheesy. I halved the recipe but put in a little extra dry mustard and a dash of tabasco just to spice it up a little. We loved it and will have it again. Gloria

This was excellent. At first I thought it was going to be too dry, but it turned out perfect. I love the flavor that the garlic powder and dry mustard gave it. Will be making this again. Thanks.
