Macaroni and Blue Cheese

"Very rich taste and unique twist on an old favorite. Goes quite well served with a grilled steak or chicken breast. A wonderful recipe given to me by my dear friend (and great cook) Amy."

    I made this because I was craving some blue cheese. Pretty good but needs more blue cheese because I could not taste it at all! (and I used 1 3/4 cups)

    Fantastic recipe! I'm not a blue cheese fan, but I LOVED this delicious, creamy pasta!

    For blue cheese addicts like me, it doesn't get any better! I agree with Chef#296809 that the nutrition facts are misleading so re-posted with some low-fat modifications: see Recipe #227172.

    Very rich & tasty is right! This is some of the best "comfort food" I have tasted in a long time & I found myself searching for the 10* rating again! I made a half recipe just as written except I did add about 1/4 cup extra milk when it appeared the mixture might be too dry when baked & it was *PERFECT* We were hungry & ate heartily, but even a half recipe made more than 4 generous servings. IMO this generously serves at least 8 & surely is part of the reason the Nutrition Facts are startling. TY for sharing this sensational taste treat w/us. :-)
