"Made this for a "tailgating" type dinner recently and it received many great reviews - had a number of people say "don't lose that recipe". I substituted nacho blend cheese for the cheddar and kept the sharp cheddar. Definitely a hit in our family."

"Eh. I liked that this recipe does not have a lot of fake ingredients in it, like cheese soup & velveeta, but it definitely lacks a nice creamy consistency. The taste is fine, but the texture is pretty weird."

"This was mushy, very gloppy, and had an unpleasant taste. It was inedible! I've never thrown away a dinner before, this was the first one."

"Loved it...would definitely try a lighter version, like cut back on the butter used (there was so much grease sitting on the top that I mopped it up with paper towels) & use reduced fat cheese instead. I also added 2 squirts of mustard for an extra taste :o) My family loved it."

"I have a rather stupid question. When a recipe says 2 cups uncooked macaroni does it work to simply measure two 8 ounce measuring cups full of uncooked pasta?"
