    This is the most awesome Macaroni & Cheese that we have ever eaten. It is a family favorite and we have it once a week. All four of my kids request it often, and my husband thinks it's incredible. Hope you enjoy this comfort food.

      Hi Karen: Made your YUMMIE Mac and Cheese dish this evening. It is Sooperb! I cut the ingredients in 1/2 as there are only two of us here. Didn't hurt a thing! Tis creamy, golden, and downright tasty! Thanks for another winner! Sincerely, Laudee C.

      Really Good but too many noodles. We cut the noodles in half and were left with what we thought was a much better dish. Thanks for the recipe. It was just like what my Grandmother used to make.
