"I'm not a mac and cheese fan, and I thought this recepie tasted very good, and was quite easy to make. The breadcrumbs are a fantastic addition! I added some cooked, shredded chicken breast to the mac and cheese to make it a full meal, and it is also very good."
"EXCELLENT! Easiest and best Mac & cheese I ever made. For those that felt it was a bit bland, try adding a tsp of dry//brown mustard and a tsp. of Worcestershire sauce."
"So good!! This was a bit thick but then I did add in 2 more kinds of cheese ;) Picky hubby and child said it was a keeper, Thanks!"
"This was good and easy to make but next time I would make some changes. I would cut back on the flour or add more milk because the sauce was a bit thick for us. I followed the recipe exactly as written but we also thought it needed some seasoning. I did add 1/4 teaspoon of pepper. I didn't add the optional breadcrumbs."
"So creamy and so easy, I'll never make it out of 'The Box' again. I added bread crumbs and cayenne pepper to give it a kick. Just what I was looking for. Thanks for sharing!"
"Fantastic! A definite keeper, I made this when I got home from a long day and hadn't eaten in several hours; it whips up really fast and reminds me of comforting gooey restaurant-style mac n cheese. I read the other reviews first so I spiced it up with some paprika, it was perfect. Thanks for posting, I'll definitely make this again because it's speedy but doesn't compromise taste!"
"I turned my oven on to the self-cleaning cycle and so I couldn't use it to cook dinner. I found this recipe and still was able to enjoy a delicious dinner. I made my macaroni in the microwave and also added two slices of bacon. Instead of milk, I used evaporated skimmed milk, which made it a bit too thick, so I had to add extra to get the right consistency. I also added a touch more cheese. Overall, I was very pleased with how creamy this was for the little effort I put into it. Yum!"
"I am not a fan of mac and cheese and generally no one in my house is either -- guess it was that nasty stuff in a box that turned me off years agao and I never tried it again. But my teenager had his wisdom teeth out and the recommended meal for the first day was Mac & Cheese. So rather than the nasty box, I tried this...and it was surprisingly good! Yes I'd also try to spice it up a bit, but definitely very easy, very creamy and very satisfying. Perfect for what the doctor ordered--literally!"
"I didn't change a thing, other than using wagon wheels instead of elbow macaroni, and it was fabulous! Best homemade mac and cheese I've ever made...smoother and better flavor than any other I've attempted. One tip though, use a very large dish in the microwave. I used a relatively small one and it boiled over."
"Decent and not difficult but incredibly bland. I added red pepper flakes, onion powder, fresh basil, grilled onions and olives and it didn't turn out as good as I was hoping. Also, the cheese sauce is a little to goopy for my taste. I was hoping to make a Noodle & Co. type cheese sauce."
"Super easy, super fast, Yum! I also did the Kitchen Sink method I used cheedar, american, munster, and parmasean cheeses to makeup my 1 cup. Then to kick it up a little. I added 1/2 tsp of garlic pwdr and onion pwdr and then several shakes of Tabasco! Served with killer cheese burgers! Two thumbs up! Thanks for your easy recipe."
"My 9 YO DD was determinted to make mac & cheese for lunch today and found this recipe on 'zaar! She made it by herself and it is really very good. She used skim milk, Cabot 75% f/f cheddar and no crumbs on top, which makes it 6 WW points. She did microwave the roux 3 min b/c after 2 mins it just wasn't very thick. After 3 mins it was perfect! My only recipe suggestion would be to reduce the salt to 1/4 tsp. IMO, it's just shy of "too salty" as written."
"Wonderful! I was in a creative mood so I added in what was in my kitchen: 1/2 cup of italian mix cheese and 1 slice of american cheese. I also used 1/2 cream and 1/2 milk for the richness. 1/2 tsp. black pepper to add something too it. It was so easy and so simple. I will deffinately make this again."
"Loved this! It was easy to make and it turned out so creamy. I added some black pepper to spice things up a tad... I will definitely be making this again. Thanks for sharing!"
"This was soooo easy, and tasty. Next time I will use a little sharp cheddar as well. It is a bit bland without it to me. I used crushed ritz crackers on top instead of bread crumbs. Thanks for making home made mac and cheese easy."
"I've made this twice now and it is so creamy and cheesy. Very good recipe."
"I made this for me and my kids and my day home kids. We ALL loved it!! I used whole wheat flour and whole wheat noodles. I didn't use the bread crumbs. It was so quick and easy!"
