      This was very tasty, but a little dry. (However, fresh out of the oven it looked so creamy and good!) I didn't get to try it fresh out of the oven, but I had it reheated in the microwave. Very good for lowfat mac and cheese, but it doesn't reheat well, and it makes a huge batch. I will make it again. Thanks for posting.

      I made this recipe over the weekend as a side with a baked ham. No one guessed it was low fat! I made just as written except I had a bit less sour cream than I thought, so I substituted plain nonfat yogurt for about 1/4 of a cup, and it tasted just fine. The mac and cheese was much creamier than I thought it'd be, a very welcome surprise. Thanks for such a great recipe!

      My hubby is a BIG FAN of Kraft mac n' cheese--unfortunately I am trying to cook healthier for him! I read the reviews before I started (always a good thing!) & halved the recipe but doubled the spices for more flavor. The cheese sauce was a cinch to whip up--& I used whole wheat mac. Instead of breadcrumbs, I topped it w/ more low fat cheddar for an extra cheesy flavor. Hubby enjoyed it--WOW! I don't know how this will re-heat, as some folks had issues with that--but my sweetie likes mac n' cheese warmed up--so hopefully this will be a keeper!! Thank u for sharing!
