Simple, classic Mac and cheese! Yum!
Gross..just gross no seasoning. The mac was burnt because it said not to cover it. Who in cooks like this ? not me yuck!

This is about the fifth time I’ve made it it . It’s easy and always turns out great
Excellent! The best I've ever made! it was so easy to make also.

Hard to go wrong with this one. I doubled the recipe and substituted in some Swiss cheese for the cheddar.

Great. I️t was so easy. I️ did however add a lot more cheese .. lol it’s soooo good .. oh and I️ did my own seasoning
The top layer was good! The bottom wasn’t salty enough and I think I should put more cheese for mine.

Great! It's a quick thing to throw in the oven and the kids love watching and helping make it!

We added bread crumbs and bacon to the top layer which gave it texture. The meal came out great! Very easy to upsize and share with friends. A suggestion is to add different types of cheeses to give it more flavour. Would definitely recommend this recipe to others.

The best Mac and Cheese I have ever eaten!

Yummy and cheesy but needs something else to give it a bit of flavour

This recipe may have been easy but it wasn't the tastiest macaroni and cheese I've had. The cheese on top was too crunchy and hard and i think it would have been better to cover the macaroni in the oven.

Whenever I make this I add Italian breadcrumbs toasted with butter on the top and a variety of cheeses. I can (and have) eat it cold the next day because I can't wait long enough to reheat it!

This Mac and cheese is delish!!! It is so easy to make and turned out great!! We added bread crumbs on top to add some extra crisp!

Very simple to make and tastes awesome, a lot better than out of the box. I've gotten creative by also sprinkling some breadcrumbs on top, adds a nice texture.

Delicious! Seriously one of the best recipes I've found on this app. Will be making this again and again.

Delicious! So easy to make and leave. Will definitely be making this one again - the whole family loved it!

This recipe had a little bit too much butter for me, not sure if there is a less buttery option, however I definitely added more cheese, delicious!
