I tried this first because it looked even easier than "Easy Stove Top Macaroni and Cheese" by Marie. This recipe IS a little easier since it uses bottled sauce, but the other is SO MUCH BETTER that it's worth the extra three or four minutes it takes to make.

Bottled Alfredo sauce gives this an odd texture that's both slick and gluey, and Worcestershire sauce is just wrong in macaroni and cheese. Besides, what's with calling this a "stove top" recipe when it goes under the broiler? The only difference between baking and broiling is which element heats up, but it's still in the oven.

The broiling in this recipe takes as long as making the quick sauce in Marie's recipe, but taste and texture are infinitely better with the other recipe.
