    Don't do it. Those noodles will look nothing like what they've depicted above, and you will end up pitching the whole thing into the trash. - 11/26/13

    I much prefer making my own - use whole wheat pasta, and send some reduced fat cheeses (a blend of types tastes better) through the food processor to powder-ize it so it melts nicely. That plus a quick reux from whole wheat flour and milk is very satisfying. - 2/20/14

    I still haven't found a mac n' cheese recipe that fills that void for me. This recipe isn't it either. I think I am sticking to the homemade stuff that may not be that good for me, but I use it as a very rare treat and REALLY get to enjoy it. - 1/16/14

    Miracle Noodles are a little bit of an acquired taste, but to everyone saying boo to them you really need to try them! I always boil mine for at least 10 min to get rid of the slightly fishy odor. Mix them with a sauce like this one and mmmm oh so good! - 2/20/14

    I am going to try this because of the carb count. But one hint for the noodles is to drain them, rinse them well, then put them in boiling water for one minute, drain and then dry them in a non stick frying pan. No fishy taste or smell. I like them and the health benefits make them even tastier. - 8/22/14

    These "noodles" are called indigestible for a reason. Please don't anybody use these. Who the heck knows what that is really doing to your body. Just eat real food, indulge in something like mac'n'cheese occasionally. But don't eat something this fake just because it has very few calories. - 7/16/14

    Anyone notice the cal count in the video is 88 but on here it's 37 for a serving? Where did the other 50 go from the video? More cheese? - 2/20/14

    I was excited when I read skinny, to my dismay once I read the ingredients it made me unhappy. Some things are just worth the extra fat, I need whole fat cream and cheese for my mac and cheese sorry the only exception I will make is using barilla whole grain pasta. fishy noodle, almond milk no. - 3/27/14
