Wonderful Mac & Cheese recipe!!! For me this is a total comfort food and really hit the spot for our lunch. I made a scaled back version to serve the two of us. But when the kids are home for the holidays, will make the full version and this time shred my own sharp cheddar cheese (don't think the bag of shredded cheeses tastes the same). Like CharlotteJ stated, very simple, but to me simple is best most of the time!! Thanks for sharing your recipe. Made for PAC Fall 2012.

I think out of the 3 mac and cheese recipes I made, this on is my favorite. Very simple and tasty. I did not think there was not going to be enough cheese but it was just perfect. Made for My-3-Chefs June 2012

Comfort food from my child hood, I have tried many recipes and this is the one! I subbed half cooked cauliflower for cooked macaroni, forgot the butter and it was still wonderful!
