This IS the Publix mac & cheese to a T!! I was skeptical at first when looking at the recipe, but figured I'd give it a go anyway since I had all the ingredients. I've tried probably more than a dozen macaroni and cheese recipes in the past few years, but none had ever really given me that smooth tangy simple cheesy goodness I was looking for. I had done recipes with Worcestershire and mustard but without a roux, I had done recipes with a roux but no Worcestershire, it never dawned on me to put the two together. Thank you for posting this!! My hunt for the ultimate mac & cheese is now over, and it's so simple and easy!

This is a very nice mac and cheese. The flavor was very smooth cheesy with a little bite. Was also very quick and easy to make. I have tried other mac and cheese recipes in the past and most of them were very bland. I will definitely make this again.

Very smooth tasty mac & cheese, with a very nice little bite. I used whole wheat macaroni and just made half a recipe for the two of us. We enjoyed it and would make it again. Made for PAC 2009
