    AllThingsCooking's Note:

    Yeah! I know how to make "real" mac & cheese. But this is so good and simple that I can't justify the work. I hope you try this and put your own spin on it. You could add broccoli, ham or a host of other goodies!

      Very simple recipe, but with so many different possibilities! I used low fat alfredo sauce, and then threw in sauteed onion and fresh minced garlic, broccoli, parsley, and grilled chicken. I used mozzarella and cheddar cheese because that's what I had on hand. I'm looking forward to leftovers for lunch!

      This was very good and cheesy. The only difference I made was using 2 jars of the alfredo sauce. Thank you for sharing.

      This is yummy!!! I added mozarella and sharp cheddar. I used the Bertolli alfredo sauce with portabello mushrooms. I put it into a baking dish, topped with a quick mixture of bread crumbs, italian seasoning, and freshly-grated parmesan cheese mixed with a touch of olive oil which made a nice crumb topping. This is a definite keeper!
