We have made this a couple of times...tonight we added a good heaping tablespoon of dijon mustard and a heaping tablespoon of Louisiana hot sauce to the cheese sauce...Amazing! I thought there was a perfect amount of sauce for the pasta.

We really enjoyed this recipe. I too had to use yellow cheddar. It's a shame that in the South it is nearly impossible to find :( I would certainly make this again. Thanks!

Hubby likes anything with ham in it, so this was a winner with him despite the added spinach. I love the spinach tho and loved the entire recipe. Thanks ToH for another great recipe !
