    This is good -- used more cheese than called for (can't have too much cheese!). Used shredded cheese instead of cubed just because that is what I had and it worked great -- melted nicely.

    This mac and cheese has good flavour. I used whole wheat pasta and followed the recipe as written. For some reason the cubed cheese didn't melt into the casserole, even the next day when I reheated it. The cheese stayed as little cheese chunks throughout. Next time I think I'll add the cheese to the milk mixture so as to make a cheese sauce before adding it to the cooked pasta.

    so so good (i omitted the breadcrumbs and it was still delicious) i did everything fat free (milk, cheese, etc.) and did extra calclium enriched noodles. Super healthy and wayy better than the boxed version!

    Pretty good, it was my first time making homemade macaroni and cheese so I have nothing to compare it to, but this tasted pretty good and was easy to make. The milk took longer to thinken up than the recipe said.
