Easy Baked Macaroni & Cheese

"This dish has become a family holiday favorite. It's so easy and quick though, that you might want to serve it on a regular basis. I've made this with both regular and low fat ingredients and have been pleased with the results each time, though I wouldn't suggest using fat free products."

    This was very good. I loved that it was so easy to throw together! At first bite, I thought it was a little bland, but the more I ate, the more I liked it and ended up going back for more. I was just making it for the family, so I halved the recipe. Thanks for a quick and easy mac & cheese!

    Wonderfully creamy texture and great taste. Even though this contains egg, it's not custardy. I really liked how easy it was to prepare. Thanx for posting this recipe. It's a keeper that will get used over and over!

    Delicious--I could not stop eating this. Was a little to rich for the mister, but just right for me.

    I love this recipe! I tweak it by grating a half of a wedge of Romano cheese, and I have always used 2 cups of cheddar, but I will try puttin the third cup of cheddar on the top next time I make it. To keep it from being bland, I add 1 tablespoon of salt per quart of water to the pasta water, don't worry it is not too salty. I add more salt to the mixture of ingredients too. I also do a light sprinkling of paprika on top. The Romano gives another level of cheesy flavor ando aroma It has been a hit at every family reunion!
