Reviews for Smoky Macaroni
"Good stuff for when you want something a little different than the usual mac and cheese and on the cheap."
"Have made this dish time and time again, with satisfying results. My grandson loves hot dogs (beef franks) so just may have to make for him."
"This ws very good and very easy. I used fiesta nacho cheese instead of the cheddar cheese soup. I then eliminated the onions and peppers."
"This recipe looks interesting, one I'll have to try soon. I have found every recipe Mrs. Hoekema submits is a classic. Thank you very much for sharing your recipe. Sincerely, Kathy Joscelyn in Oxford, NY."
