Creamy Stove Top Macaroni and Cheese

"My family's favorite macaroni and cheese - cooked on top of the stove rather than baked! It's flavor is enhanced by the addition of prepared mustard. Little children love it because it's so creamy and cheese-y. For potlucks, make ahead and reheat in microwave, stirring, just before carrying to dinner."

    I made the recipe as-is. I liked it fine. My kids weren't fans, though. If I made it again, I'd try cutting the mustard in half.

    This was ok. The mustard was a little overpowering.

    Great recipe! I'm always looking for a good, fast mac and cheese recipe for lunch! I took the advice of others and used Dijon mustard. I halved the recipe and it worked perfectly! I love how creamy this is! Thanks!
