MY REVIEW

"Didn't love it. Maybe I needed to cook the sauce a little longer before combining the sauce with the noodles, but it was grainy and runny. I've made that sauce before as a gravy many a times, and it's never tasted grainy. Maybe it was the cheddar cheese? Who knows? But I'll keep looking for that Homemade Mac n' Cheese recipe that I remembered eating as a kid!"

"It was okay. The flavor was kind of flat and leftovers were pretty sticky. I may make a variation of this to add more flavor."

"I really liked this recipe. It is the fourth different mac n cheese recipe I have tried and this one is my favorite. I add 1 lb. of pasta and almost double the seasonings. I have also made it with more shredded cheese. I tried making the night before and re-heating, not so good. Best to make and serve immediately. To reheat leftovers, I add a little milk to it then heat in microwave."
