    For a quick but wholesome mac and cheese, look no further. This is a creamy, cheesy dish. Submitted by the Vegetarian Times.

      This was pretty good. Made a bit extra (increased all measurments by about 1/3). Fed 5. No left overs, no whining! Thanks!

      I was craving mac and cheese and this was perfect! Fast & delicious! I used about 1 3/4 cups of dry pasta for this. Thank you Miss Annie :)

      This is the best mac'n'cheese I've had made with real cheese. I've been looking for a recipe like this for a long time. But I didn't have evaporated milk, so I used whole milk and simmered longer. Also added extra cayenne and salt. I really like this recipe. Thanks!
