    This was amazing! I scaled it down to one serving and made it in the slow cooker (crock pot) on low while I was at uni all day and when I got back the kitchen smelt amazing and I didn't have to cook! I didn't have any cheddar so I used Philadelphia and wholemal pasta, which didn't seem to make a difference to the taste. Thanks for a great recipe, I'll definitely be making it again :)

    My DH made this recipe last night - it was delicious! He's not a regular cook so he had trouble with the home-made cheese sauce (I'd recommend using packet sauce if you're unsure) but once it was in the oven the "milk with lumps of flour and cheese" cooked well and prduced a tasty dish. Also, he used lowest-fat margerine (Flora Light), not butter. Thanks for posting, was lovely not to cook and better to eat!!

    This dish was all right, but it wasn't anything spectacular... Almost seemed a little bland. I am, however, fairly new to cooking, so it's quite likely I didn't do it just right.
