    This was amazing!!! I put the pasta and the sauce in a 9 by 13 pyrex container with some extra cheese sprinkled on top and put it in a 175 degree oven for 5 minutes, even better!!!!!!

    We felt that this was a nice dish for the simplicity of it, but for us it was just a tad bland. Maybe the addition of some diced seasoned chicken or something could give this dish a boost up to 5 stars. Very filling though!

    Yum, this was good! I bumped up the pasta to 8 ounces, and used a bag of frozen broccoli. I thought there was plenty of sauce, even with the extra pasta. Needed a more prominent cheese flavor for me, though. I might try a sharp cheddar next time, or try shredding my own. Also used a 12 oz can of evaporated skim, and topped it off to 2 cups with some milk. Will definitely make again!

    Very good mac n' cheese dish which we enjoyed! I used bow tie pasta which worked well for us. I also used 1 can evaporated milk and 1/2 cup 1% milk. Thanks for sharing!
