  • Based on other's reviews I too left out the breadcrumbs and I didn't bother to bake it - just did it on the stove top. I used the Barilla Plus macaroni for more fiber. It still tasted awesome! - 10/4/10

  • This was really awesome! I have made many versions of macaroni & cheese, and this was really creamy and flavorful. The sauce texture was perfect, and this is something I'll definitely make again. I omitted the breadcrumb topping, and instead, topped it with a light sprinkling of parmesan. Yummy! - 11/3/08
