Quick & easy to make. I used cheddar instead of Colby. The sauce is a little strong so next time I will just serve it with less sauce.

A definite favourite at our house! I didn't have any Colby cheese on hand when I made it the first time so I used cheddar instead. I've made this many times and it's always good!
