    Raspberry Cordial's Note:

    In the time it takes to make the boxed stuff, you can make this far superior version, cooked on the stove top and finished under the broiler. From "Noodles Express" Cookbook.

      I made this for lunch for my family as we didn't have any boxed mac n cheese...I used about half the onion because I read that the onion was too strong. My dad loves it! ****

      The first time I made this dish, I felt the onion was overpowering, and I'm a serious onion lover. I made it again for DD, leaving out the onion and doubling the roux, but cutting back on the cheese, that made it just right for us. Thanks Raspberry for a great idea. Made for Cookbook Tag, please see my rating system as I rate tougher than most.

      This is really good. I've always used Kraft Easy Melt Cheese to make quick stovetop mac & cheese, but I can't find it any more. This was very good. I'll most definitely make it again. Thanks Raspberry!
