    Easy to make but did not care for the dijon. Garlic was good. - 5/18/09

  • This was tasty and I will make it again. However, nother poster was correct-1/2c. uncooked macaroni, 1 c. cooked, has nearly 200 calories alone. I didn't notice this until AFTER I enjoyed my whole serving. No snack for me tonight! - 2/23/11

    I tried this tonight, but I didn't have all the ingredients, so I "tweaked it a little." I used Kraft mac & cheese and used 1% milk. I didn't have worcestershire sauce, cream cheese, or cheddar cheese. I had a little leftover hamburger and also put in some Lipton onion soup mix. I'll use it again! - 10/17/10

  • It tasted okay, but I'm not sure what to omit to make it a little better. I'm thinking it may be the worcestershire that we weren't fond of, so I'll try that next time and see how it comes out. We'll try it again. - 8/24/10

  • was not a fan, it had no flavor. I used a couple more dashes of worcestershire sauce. My whole family agreed it was missing something, I added a can of diced tomates, and some basil and it still just wasn't right. oh well, it sounded like a good recipe. The calorie count was also way off. - 6/17/10

  • I really liked this but I can't get the calorie count even close. I figured about 313 for the 1 cup serving. - 4/25/10

  • This was great, tastes creamy without the fat. I added 1 chopped onion and 4 minced garlic cloves to the pasta water. Will be making it again for sure. - 1/23/10

  • Really good. Stayed very creamy. I made with whole wheat elbows. Very quick---by the time the pasta cooks, the sauce is ready. Will make again. (Note to self---add extra worchestershire and hot mustard to mine). - 1/24/09

  • My husband and I ate this tonight. I used some leftover penne pasta that is high fiber. We both enjoyed it and I cut the recipe in half and we will eat the rest tomorrow with our ribs! - 9/20/08
