Top Review by FLKeysJen

For low fat this is definitely a 5! From his bachelor days, DH is used to the creaminess of Stouffers' frozen super fatty macaroni and cheese and said this needed more cheese, yet he did clean his plate in record time! I added extra paprika and lots of black pepper and thought it was wonderful - honestly I prefer this to Stouffers which is way too rich. Very easy and definitely yummy - one of my new favorites!
