I made 1/4 of this recipe (one serving), using Penne pasta instead of elbow macaroni. Maybe it would have worked better with the smaller pasta, but I found that the cheesy sauce mostly stuck to the bottom of the pan rather coating the pasta. I guess it tasted O.K., because my boys ate it anyway. I just was disappointed that, despite adding the ingredients exactly as listed, this recipe did not turn out "creamy."
My two year old, who is a mac-n-cheese aficionada, said, "I luuuuv it, Momma!" This is high praise, indeed, for she won't eat the boxed stuff unless it's the deluxe version. No powdered cheese for her! I only made about a quarter amount and used mild cheddar because that is what we had in the house.
This is a simple and tasty version of the traditional mac n' cheese! It's not much harder to prepare than box mixes, and tastes so much better! I had to make it using soy milk and soy cheese, and ended up having to add a little more milk because it got very thick while I was melting the cheese. Because soy cheese is less flavorful than regular cheddar I also added a little parmesan cheese and onion powder to give it a zip. I think with regular cheddar it would be great as is, though! Thanks for a great comfort food recipe, Jude!
So good, so easy...Definitely a keeper!
Very Good! I melted the butter,milk and cheese first,then added the macaroni,then added a little chopped ham. Its so quick and my husband loved it!!
Very good! DH & the Kiddos thought it was great. Had it with Lennie's Homemade Applesauce!
Wanted some fast comfort food for lunch and this filled the bill on a snowy afternoon - Simple fast and tasty. Served with a Pillsbury Garlic Bread stick thanks Hey Jude
This really came in handy in a pinch. I needed a quick mac and cheese recipe for Thanksgiving since all the other food was close to done and this fit the bill. It was nice that I could make this on the stovetop since my oven was full and it came out just as good as one of the more more traditional baked versions of mac and cheese. I used extra sharp cheddar and it came out very creamy and tasty.
