This is a perfect weeknight dinner. It’s incredibly easy and fast to make, and the sauce is nice and creamy. I don’t think I’d ever go back to a box mac & cheese.

loved it... first made too much sauce but added more macaroni to balance it out... i added more cheese on top and then grilled it to create a crispy layer on top

Never made homemade mac-n-cheese, but this was a hit and super easy and quick!

It was okay. I feel like more pasta could have been made for the amount of sauce. The flavour was a bit bland but I added Dijon which helped a bit. Not my favourite, wouldn’t do again.

I must of screwed it up. Very creamy but tasted more like flour then cheese. Kept adding more cheese and salt but didn’t make much of a difference.
Mac n Cheese is hard to mess up and this recipe is no different. Pasta and cheese taste good. Boom.

This was pretty good. The sauce was a little runny, but overall satisfying. It’s a very basic mac and cheese recipe, but I liked it a lot.

Delicious and easy no modifications necessary
Just like the title says, this Macaroni was way, not to mention delicious!
Yummy kids love it! Very easy to make
yummy ill put bacon next time
Easy to make and my kids loved it
I modified it a bit to make a bigger serving, And used Penne noodles instead of macaroni. It was a perfect base and starting point for my family, and we each added more of our own spices after it was all divided between us!
Good, but needed a little dry mustard.

Awesome recipe! I added some garlic powder in it for some extra taste which made it even better. Thanks for the best mac&cheese recipe!

Great quick simple recipe
Renee 15 Oct 2017
Ended up needing more butter and far more cheese than the recipe called for. It was pretty bland but not inedible.
Heather K. 25 Sep 2017
Amazing! I didn’t modify it at all but the cheeses used.
Erin 30 Aug 2017
Delicious and quick I've made mac and cheese in the over, in a crockpot and now on the stovetop. This is by far my favorite!!

This was great! This was my first time making mac and cheese and it was so simple and easy. The mac turned out extremely creamy, maybe because I substituted half the milk for some light cream I needed to use, but that plus some cayenne pepper and a sprinkle of bacon made it the perfect comfort food.

Turned out nice and creamy. We added about 3/4 cup more cheese and doubled the recipe. Made enough for a family of 4 plus leftovers. Will definitely make this again.
