    This was perfect! I have made mac and cheese many times before but it's always come out not creamy enough. I also added a pinch of dry mustard since I am a fan of the flavor. Came out creamy and my picky mac and cheese connoisseur loved it! This recipe is a keeper!!!!! Thank you for sharing.

    First time making mac and cheese without butter. Very creamy and tasty. I topped mine with french fried onions and added some pepper to the sauce. Thanks for sharing.

    Good stuff and easy to make with things you usually have around the house. I did it with Laughing Cow cheese, you need 10 of the little wedges to make the weight. Better the first time than leftover, but one most people would like and good fat content too.

    This is the ONE! I have been looking for this recipe again ever since I first tried it from Cooking Light, and since I did not recall the exact name, I was uncertain which recipe it was. Creamy without being too too cheesey or too rich...perfect. The way my family loves their mac & cheese. I knew it was the right recipe when my daughter scooped out a second portion. You would not believe how many recipes for mac & cheese I have tested, trying to find the right blend for my family's taste buds...well this is it. Thank you for sharing :)

    A very tasty macaroni and cheese. Love how creamy it is and it has just the right amount of cheese.
