Reviews for Budget Macaroni and Cheese
"We made this for Thanksgiving (just the 2 of us). It was good. I definitely think the flavor should be kicked up a notch when making it again as it did taste a little too much like flour. :)"
"I added extra 1/2 cup of pepper cheese and kicked the flavor up a bit. Also put it under the broiler for a few minutes for a little extra crunch."
"Good and easy to make."
"After making this recipe we tasted too much flour and not enough seasonings and cheese."
"Nothing special. More like a box recipie."
