"In my opinon, you can never have too many mac and cheese recipes. A slightly more sophisticated version of the classic macaroni and cheese. Don't worry the kids will still love it."

    What do the 2 cheeses taste like together ? I've not used these together before.

    I really don't know why no one has mentioned this is WAY too much macaroni. We loved this recipe, but the macaroni should be 8 oz.

    I'm giving this 5 stars based on ease of cooking and ingredients. I'm going to add cooked chicken breast chunks mixed with Frank's Hot Sauce and chopped celery to this to make it a buffalo chicken pasta - thanks for a great base dish!

    I thouroughly enjoyed this more sophisticated mac and cheese! I loved the flavors of the two cheeses used in this. I stirred some chives right into the mixture as well as using some for garnish. Another great thing is that this is very quick to make. Thanx for sharing!

    Very nice. I loved how quick this is to put together. Quicker than any other homemade Mac-n-cheese I've made. Just cook the noodles and stir everything together, all stovetop. Gorgonzola isn't my personal favorite, but it makes a nice change for once in a while. We used thinly sliced scallions on top instead of chives. Hubby really liked that. This was very well received by the family. Will make again. But I'm curious if this could serve as a sort of "template" for mac-n-cheese and I could vary the particular cheeses I choose to use? That could be fun too.

    I really loved it, and so simple too. I followed the recipe and didn't change a thing. It's a different kind of mac and cheese, not your average. The flavor is awesome and I made a pig of myself LOL If you like fontina and Gorgonzola cheese you'll love this !!

    Reminds me of recipe I have made in the past using gorgonzola and string beans. I would tweak this by using penne and adding steamed, penne-sized string beans to this great mix.
