This was good Mac and Cheese. My girls ate it right up. I really like my mac and cheese to be a creamier though. This was very cheesy,but a stringy cheesy and I would have left out some of the butter had I known it was going to be so rich. It did have a good taste. Be sure to use the sharp cheddar. It really adds a zing.

It is good and the whole family liked it. We also like ours to be creamier, so even though I added a little extra half&half, I will add even more the next time. After 30 minutes of baking it was a little too dry for our taste, but definately good and a keeper. Thanks for posting.
