    Doobtones's Note:

    I like this mac and cheese because the sauce is smooth, gooey and delicious--and it doesn't curdle while baking like some recipes. Make sure you use a big enough pan for baking, otherwise the sauce will ooze onto the floor of your oven! The mozzarella cheese is the key to this recipe--don't leave it out. You can use the noodles from 2 7-ounce boxes of regular macaroni and cheese mix for this recipe, just discard the cheese packets (or try mixing them in).

      I made this for bargain basement game. When I added the cheese sauce to the pasta, it looked like way too much, so I cooked up a bit more pasta and that was much better. The taste was good and it was easy to put together. I think the mozz. cheese i used had been frozen previously so that may have affected the smoothness. I will make this again with all fresh cheese.
