This rich, cheesy side dish is such an excellent meal extender that I always keep it in mind whenever I feel my menu needs a boost. It's a quick and easy casserole to fix...and is always devoured in a hurry! -Shirley McKee, Varna, Illinois

"I've been looking for a good homemade mac 'n' cheese recipe and this was just that. However, it makes waaay more than would fit in two shallow 2-qt. baking dishes. I had to use two 13 x 9 dishes and when I baked them, they almost bubbled over. To the best of my knowledge, I followed the recipe exactly, using six cups of milk. Anyone else have the same experience?"
