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!
