This is my favorite dish to bring to church dinners, and whenever we have a carry-in at work, I'm asked to make it. I discovered the recipe several years ago. The rich creamy taste keeps it on my list of favorites. My husband even loves it cold! -Barbara Williams, Shady Dale, Georgia

"This wasn't bad, but it wasn't great, either. I prefer a macaroni and cheese with smooth cheese, and this isn't one of those recipes. The mushrooms were a nice touch, though."

"This is the best Macaroni and Cheese dish I have ever tasted. I did lighten it a little with no fat mayonaise and reduced fat cheese. And I added a little bread crumbs to it. Everyone that I've made this for loves it!"
