Boxed mac and cheese dinners are easier and have about as much taste.
There was absolutely no flavor to this recipe. Too much flour taste. Not recommended.
I really like this recipes, it's quick, easy, and tastes so good... too good. I plan on making this again, maybe with swiss, or pepperjack cheese!
It was different but I prefer the baked version. I will make this again for a quick side dish.
