"Made this last night for a bbq steak supper for a few buddies. Only change made was to add some coarsely chopped onion towards the end of cooking the macaroni, and only because we all love onions. Definitely the best mac and cheese I have ever made, and only 5 guys made short work of it all. A couple never finished their steak or corn on the cob, just to have more of it. A real keeper for me. Thanks so much!!!"

"This recipe has become a tradition in the family. I'm always giving out the recipe. I have used up to two boxes of elbow pasta and it's still creamy cheesy. BEST EVER!"

"The most over used phrase today is OMG....but --- O.M.G!!! I have been searching for ages for a go-to Mac and Cheese recipe. This one is by far the best I have ever tasted. Incredibly creamy and delicious. My only wish is that I had boiled the noodles about 3 minutes less. They weren't mushy, or anything, but since this was for a potluck, I had turned it off 30 minutes before lunch to keep them from turning too mushy. Wish I had brought some breadcrumbs as well - that would have added a little crunch and next time I will probably add some diced ham. I'm in heaven!! Thank you for this recipe!!!"

"My kids and grandkids love a creamy Mac and Cheese rather than the baked version. This one is perfect. It has a wonderful flavor and turned out smooth and creamy. The recipe makes a large amount, but I cooled the leftovers and froze individual packs for the kids to reheat. This reminds me of a "name brand" frozen mac and cheese that is so much more expensive, but tastes way better."
