    Chef #635694's Note:

    Tasty macaroni, made with strong cheddar for extra zip! Great comfort food. Tastes best if topping is allowed to go "crunchy" and brown.

      I just made this for dinner, and it was wonderful! It is very close if not the same as my great granny used to make for every holiday dinner or family. I ended up using twice as much cheese as in the recipe but that may just be me :) The only other thing I did different, is I didn't leave it uncovered for 45 minutes, only about 20 minutes. Thank you so much for posting this recipe! well i wanted to add that since i have made this without doubling the cheese, and it was actually better. the first time around witht the extra cheese it was very good, but there was a lot of oil if the bottom of the casserole dish. who knew that sometimes more cheese isn't always better :)

      I made this last weekend exactly as written using orange coloured old cheddar and spiral pasta. DH told me not to lose this recipe. That makes it a winner for me. Thankyou for posting
