      Yummy yummy! I am without an oven at the moment so trying more microwave cooking. This came out really great! I doubled the pepper and mustard and added an extra ounce of cheese (I used white American (vs. yellow American)) because I had it to use. Also used skim milk. Cooked in a 2.5 qt bowl instead of a casserole because I was afraid of it boiling over. There was a lot of sauce but it thickened up quickly and was fine with me - more cheese the better! :) Thanks for sharing!

      Well I thought this was a great recipe!! I didn't have ground mustard so I used a squirt of grainy yellow mustard and it had a nice taste to it. Grandkids LOVED this recipe. Thanks for sharing!!

      I wanted something more than the usual box mix. This was quick, but had too much sauce. It does thicken up upon standing, but I would use more noodles next time. I added 1 tsp Worc. sauce and used sharp cheddar cheese. The mac 'n chz hater did like this! I think she's sick of the box mix. I cooked it for 9 min at step 7, but the noodles were overcooked. All in all, a great dish. Dh liked it too. Oh, and I used the same 2.5 ltr dish and it didn't boil over. Go figure!
