    This is delicious. A couple of options are to put velveeta slices on top before cooking, and we eat this with a homemade Russian dressing on top, which i don't expect anyone else to do!

      This is a really good basic mac and cheese recipe for those of us who don't care for boxed stuff. I found that adding a little dry mustard to it enhanced the flavor, and I think there are a number of things that you could add to it to make it your own. Very very creamy.

      Very creamy and cheesy! I halved the recipe easily and baked in my countertop convection oven. I took your suggestion of using white cheddar and didn't have quite enough, so added some gouda to it. Worked great! Made for Fall 2011 PAC game.
