  • This did NOT work as directed. You have to make a sauce then pour over the mac. - 12/5/18

  • Incredible!
    Very good! Never made baked macaroni and cheese before. This was the simplest one I could find. I doubled the recipe and used both mild cheddar and parmesan cheeses. Delicious and so easy! I'll be making it again! - 4/7/17
