Amazing! I used Honey Dijon as it was the only Dijon I had. It added an amazing sweet flavour to this already delicious dish!

This dish was nice. I'd suggest boiling the pasta before though. Overall the taste is awesome.

So good the first time i made it. The second time it turned out goopy and not right. but i believe its because i kvercooked the milk, be careful of that! overall still very delicious, the mustard makes it even better. would make it again.

I will not make this again...it was thick (I added extra milk based upon reviews) but still runny. I wish I would have added extra pasta, but it might not have cooked properly

So good especially if baked if only I didn’t put in too much salt it would have been better

I don’t know what I did wrong, but I added milk and it still was really thick 😕🤷‍♀️
Pretty good and gooey, I added ham and olives, but did not bake. Next time I will try it.

Looks nice and easy to make

Fail. This takes a lot more time then making regular homemade Mac & Cheese. The pasta never softened no matter how long I cooked it or how much milk I added.

Was good but not creamy enough
Great simple recipe, I’m going to teach my teenagers to cook it!
Great tasting and easy to make. Couldn't get it creamy enough so may take some playing around with.
I actually boiled my noodles in water since I did gluten free noodles I was not sure how it would taste since the gluten free does get softer than normal noodles do anyway and added milk, cheese a tbs butter salt, pepper, 1 tbs djon must.. also shredded my own cheese it turned out super yummy !

Turned out absolutely awful!! It was thick as concrete mix even after adding MORE milk!! A huge waste of time, pasta, cheese, and even Dijon lol!! Do NOT recommend making this!!!
Followed the instructions to a T and ended with a ton of liquid leftover so i drained off quite a bit of milk which i thought was a waste. I didn't have any regular dijon mustard but I did have some dill flavored dijon mustard and used that instead and I'm glad I did or it wouldn't have had hardly any flavor. I also used a 50/50 mix of Cheddar and Italian Style cheeses. Overall, with the changes I made it came out pretty good and it's approved by my picky 5-year-old.
Hey it's 100 degrees outside so lets make mac n cheese!!! Didn't regret it for a minute; this is so much better than "boil in water" pasta. But increase the milk a bit - it is thick
Added too much salt on accident but it’s still really good. I would make it again.

Wonderful! I tried doing it half milk/half water because I was afraid my family wouldn't like it, but I ended up adding the milk in the end.
A litter sour (I guess) first taste because of the mustard, but reheated it’s even better

It just didn’t taste right.
Reallly really bland took way longer than 20 minutes to cook
The taste of mustard is just way to strong made it twice and both times to mustard overpowered the taste of everything else
Turned out great! Whole family enjoyed it!
Really cheesy and easy to make. A huge hit

Really quick and easy. Nice and cheesy. Made a bigger batch. Added fried bacon and onion and grilled in the oven after. Yummo!
