    This recipe is a keeper. The only change that I made was I added in onions. Otherwise flavor was on point.

    It was very yummy. I didn’t have beef broth so I used water instead. 10/10 would make again.

    Delicious, I will make it again for sure! I think I will add peas or some type of vegetable though so it’s a whole meal.

    Quick, easy, and tasty. Better than using prepackaged Hamburger Helper if for no other reason, the lack of additives. It’s a keeper

    Next time I make it, I will leave out the salt. The cheese has enough saltiness already.

    It was good! Quick andeasy! I used Veleeta instead. Had to keep adding water as the macaroni cooked. Tasted good though. My kids even liked it seeing as how they dont like anything.

    Turned out good! Cut the recipe in half, but needed to end up adding more beef broth. I also sprinkled the cheese on top instead of mixing it in to melt. Kids loved it!
