So easy & cheesy, with a great flavor. I followed the recipe exactly, using whole wheat noodles and doubling the hot sauce. I also used half mild and half sharp cheddar cheese. The onions, when sauteed and then baked, develop a very mellow, perfect flavor. I mixed this all together and then refrigerated half a day before baking, so added a few minutes to the baking time. DH raved & raved about this - I will definitely make it again. I served it with Meat Loaf Barbecue Style, salads and Southern Green Beans. Thanks!

Really good! would maybe use a little less pasta next time I like it a little more saucy, and would probably add more hot sauce it went so well in the cheese sauce. Very yummy. Added bread crumbs to the top before baking. Thank you for the recipe!

This was delicious! Everyone at Thanksgiving loved it. I used half cheddar and half gouda cheese.
