    Great recipe. However, I did use shredded cheddar cheese since I didn't have any Colby. Definitely one to make again and again. - 11/14/09

    SO YUMMY! I used skim milk & Cabot 50% reduced fat cheddar. Also reduced salt to 1/4 tsp. Took about 30 min. in the oven for me.
    I felt like I needed to whisk the milk mixture constantly while cooking so it didn't burn to the bottom (but maybe not necessary?). Tried 2nd time w/wheat pasta. Yum!!

    You're right, you do need to stir or whisk continuously while heating the milk mixture. I do that so automatically I forgot to say it in the directions!
