Tonight I just couldn't get my act together for dinner! Came home and thought that I would have a quickie dinner - Mac and Cheese. No problem. OK...soon discovered there was a problem when I had no Mac...so off to the store I went to buy macaroni. Came home, boiled the water and macaroni and started the sauce. No milk ...or at least not enough....and no chicken bouillon. What to do? Triumph! A new Mac and Cheese recipe was born....so come share it.....it turned out surprisingly great! You can substitute chicken flavouring for the vegetable. I used what I had in the fridge....in fact I'll put this one up against my regular mac and cheese any day !

This was a good macaroni and cheese that gets extra points for being easy to put together! I did add a whole teaspoon of dry mustard for some extra kick. It tasted quite a bit like the fondue cheese that we always make. Thanks for posting!

I think this recipe has a lot of potential, however, I did not care for the extra old white cheddar. (That is the actual name on the package, Canadian Extra Old Cheese) It was WAY too strong for my taste. I will try making again with a mild white cheddar or monterey jack even. I think it will be perfect once I use the milder cheese. Thanks for the recipe!

Absolutely delicious! I don't generally like macaroni and cheese! It's like a cross between a bechamel and a veloute base for this sauce! I also love how it uses 2 cups of cheese, unlike most recipes that call for 4 cups (for the same amount of pasta), which tend to taste gluey and overwhelming. Your amount is just perfect for my tastes. I used regular vegetable bouillon, pinot grigio for the wine, and white cheddar cheese. This recipe is a keeper:). Thanks for sharing!!!!
