Amazing !! kids love it deff keeper in this house
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!
Could not find white chedder so used yellow. I also used fresh spinach. It was very good.
Very good and easy no left overs!
