Reviews for Microwave Mac 'n' Cheese
"while high in fat content, it is so yummy. and it is fun to give in and forget the fat grams once in a while.. i am glad to find this recipe as the box stuff was startin g to taste terrible to me."
"My family and I just love this recipe, and I already have made it several times. For those of you that have taken it to gatherings, do you make it advance or what? I would appreciate your advice :)"
"The fat content was too high for me so I cut out the butter, changed the milk to skim and used low fat velveeta. OMG it was awesome. Brought the fat down to around 6 gm per serving. Definately in the acceptable range for me!"
"The BEST and easiest mac n cheese ever! I have had so many requests for this recipe when I take it to gatherings that I now automatically pack the recipe so others can copy it."
