"As far as I'm concerned, there is no "bad" macaroni and cheese. My husband and I really enjoyed this recipe, and I didn't have to feel quite so guilty eating it because of the veggies."

"My husband is on a low fat diet. Therefore had to modify recipe a bit. Used no fat cheddar cheese and healthy Request cheddar cheese soup. Have made this several times....very good!"

"Added diced carrots and red bell peppers, plus some left over taco meat. This is such a nice change from the Blue Box, and made enough for 6 large servings."
