This old-fashioned macaroni casserole gets a different twist, thanks to Gouda cheese. It bakes up nice and creamy with just a hint of zip from the hot sauce. It's comfort food at its yummiest.

I have been on a search to find a homemade macaroni recipe that doesn't have Velveeta in the ingredients list. This recipe was quite yummy. I ended up doubling this recipe, used a family size can of cream of chicken soup, and used brown rice pasta. My fiancee is raving about this dish, whereas I'm still a little undecided. I'm sure it would have been better with regular wheat pasta, but that's the downside to being gluten intolerant. I will go ahead and keep this recipe as one of my top macaroni and cheese recipes unless I find something to top it.

We loved the recipe, of course I tweaked it to suit our taste. I left off the breadcrumbs and butter and added extra milk and some sour cream to the extra 1/3 cup pasta. I also added some smoked pepper jack to the top.yummy!!!

This is a great dish my whole family loves. I share it a lot at cook outs and I double the batch but there's never left overs! Friends always ask for the recipe. The other thing I love about this recipe is it's half the calories of similar recipes!
