    Tried this last night, it was just as she said. Very creamy and very very good. So far it's the best one I've tried. Very easy to make. I served it as a side dish with Salisbury Steak and green beans.Will definetly make it again.

    I tripled the recipe so I could take it to a potluck. I ended up with way too much sauce so I ended up adding another 4 cups of pasta. So next time I need to double the pasta and see if that works. Kids ate this up. Super creamy and cheesy!!

    It was pretty good. Although for me, the directions were a little confusing, but I worked it out with the help of other reviews and similar recipes. I will definitely try it again, only I will adjust a few things. I used 16 ozs of cheese and shell macaroni. 2 cups were NOT enough. I doubled it.

    This is so yummy! Just the ticket for this drizzley cold New England day! I had some scallons hanging out in the fridge so I sauteed them in the butter. I think the sharper the cheddar the better in this recipe. Very creamy and not dry at all! Thanks for sharing.

    Loved this recipe! I made a few substitutions (which was necessary to incorporate what I had on-hand). Instead of the sour cream, I used some cream cheese and some Ragu "Double Cheddar" cheese sauce. I will definitely make this again (hopefully with the sour cream next time)!
