  • O.K.
    kids usually love mac n cheese, but didn't really care for this. It could be that I added too much milk because I had to double the recipe. I will try again, but next time, use less milk

  • Yummy. I added 2 cups of mixed veggies, and 5 oz of chicken breast and was able to get 7 1-cup servings @ 193 calories. Filling. - 2/2/11

    It seemed a little thin to me (my family likes very thick creamy mac/cheese) so I thickened the sauce with a little bit of cornstarch. Otherwise it was very good. Will definitely make this again and again. - 4/15/09

    Some great low cal add ins for mac and cheese - grated carrots, red pepper, onion, dijon mustard, zucchini, low fat cottage cheese, spinach or arugula -- you can easily double your portion be more filled up. Don't forget whole wheat pasta! - 4/7/09
