This was a good, simple recipe. I added some garlic to enhance the flavor.

Word to the wise .. do not try to use Kraft singles in place of Velveeta slices. :) I also attempted to make it in the slow cooker, which I forgot about... Ended up mushy but that could simply have been user error. Not sure if I'd try this again since I have a few other successful versions of Mac&Cheese, but glad to have cooked and learned.

Do not make this recipe. I doubted it from the beginning. Very vague instructions and complicated preparation. The end effect is tasteless with the amount of milk and onion compared to the amount of cheese.

I made this but instead of butter and crumbs on top ,I put buttered slices of bread on the top.Also I made a cheese sauce and poured it over the macroni. Then cooked it. Our family loves it.Telly.Easier and just as good.

Was bland and tasteless. I was very disappointed and I followed the directions exactly.

I don't usually like homemade mac and cheese but am still eating the left overs! My boyfriend, whose mom makes everything homemade says this was better than any of her versions of homemade mac and cheese! thanks for sharing!

A great low fat mac and cheese recipe. My wife and I loved it and I will make it again. Even the leftovers reheated were great.

Nice lower fat mac & cheese. I used whole wheat pasta to make it even better. I would recommend letting it sit for several mintues before serving, It got better.

Very good. I personally did not use fat-free evaporated milk or fat-free milk because I didn't have any on hand, and although it probably decreased the healthy benefits, the recipe was very good! My 13 month old couldn't get enough and even my husband was pleased. I was happy because it was so easy!
