Nutrition & Calorie Comments  

This was easy to make and very tasty. I didn't add bacon bits and I used Campbell's healthy request cheese soup and about 1/2 cup of mixed low fat shredded cheese. My kids liked it. Submitted by:

Correct calories are 490 calories per serving when you make 6 servings. I thought it was too good to be true. Sadness! I won't be making this again. Too many calories! Submitted by:

It was missing something. My family thought it was dry. I added a 1/2 cup of fat free sour cream & that seemed to do it. Goes over well now. Kids still won't eat much of it but if they don't recognize it as junk food they say it is 'healthy' and won't eat it. Submitted by:

For me the missing ingredient was salt, and I am a very low salt user who never adds salt to my food. Also think the amount of Parmesan is way too much for a 2-qt casserole's surface; I cut it in half and it still overpowered the taste and just stayed dry and unattractively unbrowned on top.

I changed things up a bit according to what I had on hand but it was delicious! I used 1 cup sharp cheddar, 1 cup mozzarella, 1 cup 50% reduced fat Vermont cheddar and FF half & half instead of milk. I also used onion powder and left out the bacon bits and panko. Topped it off with sharp cheddar. Submitted by:

We followed the suggestion to try it with bacon bits, and boy is it good! I use 16 TBSP of Hormel Premium Real Crumbled Bacon and use Barilla Plus Pasta. It bumps up the calories to 321 per serving, but a little decadence every once in a while is a good thing! I'm going to try the tuna next! Submitted by:

Based off of other comments, I made a few changes. I added a little bit of light butter, some garlic, salt and pepper, and about a teaspoon of minced onion. I also used Campbell's fiesta nacho cheese soup. We thought it tasted very good and the leftovers even reheated good in the microwave. Submitted by:

I loved this! I made it with half shredded cheddar and half shredded mozzarella cheese though. I thought it was really good as is, and it was good heated up the next day too. My boyfriend thought something was missing, and added salt, pepper, garlic powder, and chicken to it. Submitted by:

Enjoyed! Could not find 2% colby and jack. Settle for what I could find. Butter taste was the missing flavor for me. When I reheated left overs, I sprints the tops with I Can't Believe It's Not Butter! Spray 0 calories. Thanks for the cool recipe. Submitted by:

Almost perfect. Very good, but something was missing. The wife and I agreed the missing flavor was 'butter'. Though I haven't tried it yet, I'm going to try a little butter flavored extract next time. I did add some dry mustard and garlic salt and pre-heated/melted the milk, soup and cheese. Submitted by:

We loved this!! We used fat free chddar cheese instead and it was incredible. Although, if you are planning to feed this to adults, plan on 4 filling servings, rather than 6. Will definately make this again! Submitted by:

I'm not usually a fan of homemade mac & cheese (I love the high-cal boxed stuff!) but this one is great. I use Hood's Calorie Countdown milk and reduced fat cheese for even less calories. I've also used Campbell's fiesta nacho cheese for some added zip--I'm sure a jar of queso would do as well. Submitted by:

I liked this. But my husband didnt like it at all. He likes the instant mac and cheese ( that has 400+ Calories ) I would make this again for myself or work/family function. Submitted by:

I cut up two chicken breasts, cooked the pieces, and added them in for some extra protein. This was delicious! Will definitely be making it again! Submitted by:

The whole family loved this one, and my husband doesn't even like mac & cheese. Also, I compared it with the box M&C and it was about 100 calories less. Way to go! Submitted by:
