Reviews for Macaroni and Cheese for Two
"This was very good. I enjoyed it. My husband and kids are picky so they didn't try it. I thought the flavor was very rich and cheesy. I did think it was a little on the salty side. If I make this again I will cut the salt in half."
"This was easy and delicious. Added diced onions to mix, more cheese than called for and bread crumbs on top - definitely making again! YUM!!"
"it was good"
"I love this recipe! Easy to make, quick for a night when I don't have anything else prepared. I like to add extra cheese and a breadcrumb topping made with more cheese and some parmesan mixed in. Delicious!"
"Skipped the egg and added some mild cheddar in with the sharp. Very good mac & cheese recipe!!"
"Very good, very rich! I only used 1/2 tablespoon of butter and it was more than enough."
"This was a yummy dish and very easy to make! I have a five year old and she loves her macaroni. I loved that it was basic and you have the ability to really add anything to it to create something new or jazz it up if you are in the mood! Fantastic job!"
"So Easy and so good!"
"I love this recipe! I usually double it so we can have leftovers. I omit the butter because it seems to make it too greasy and really doesn't add any flavor. I also usually add panko breadcrumbs before baking. This is my new go-to mac and cheese recipe. It is super quick and easy and tastes amazing!"
"I thought this was great! I doubled it, used corkscrew pasta, and added breadcrumbs to the top. I would omit the butter next time though, as it made it a bit greasy. Other than that, super quick and easy and definitely a winner!"
