    I knew as I was making it that it was not going to be like in the images. Very grainy and not even close to creamy. Too bad, a lot of cheese into the garbage bin and a couple of sad little boys....🙁 Will try a different recipe next time. Thanks anyway though for your effort. Maybe I did something wrong.

    I loved the macaroni. I have messed up on many macaroni recipes. None of them would turn out very good. The sauce for this recipe was perfect. The texture was a little weird (probably one of my many mistakes) but the taste was AMAZING!!!

    Excellent! Used mozzarella instead because I didn't have cheddar. Very tasty.

    Very easy, smooth and creamy, not grainy like other recipes I’ve tried. Didn’t need to add anything other than a little pepper into the sauce before adding pasta. Husband and sons will definitely fight over this! This is a keeper:)

    i followed the recipe, and there was so much cheese. it made a lot so we refrigerated it and ate it the next day, and the cheese went down as the pasta absorbed it, and it was great. i loved it, but maybe use 2 lbs of macaroni instead of 1 lb though.

    Great! I used cheddar and Gouda cheese and it turned out great. A little light on the noodles, but very good cheese sauce.

    I think i can do better.. I made it for my lunch so it was quick. So I ll be trying it again.

    So I halved the recipe because I wasn’t sure how well I would like it or how well it would turn out. Wowie wow wow!!! This is my new favorite Mac n cheese!!! I love it❤️ so creamy and cheesy but in a good way. The cheese looks stringy until you mix with the noodles and then it just heaven. I made enough sauce to save for later in the week to boil more noodles and have this yummy goodness again soon!!! Thanks for the recipe. I have made a cheese sauce for veggies before but it never tasted so good..😀
    it turn out that i cant take too much cheese

    It definitely is the creamiest I've found in all the recipes I've made . Could be a little creamier . But good over all. Would make it again

    fantastic! I had to improvise with the cheese, I didn't have enough of the listed so I used 8 oz mexican shredded and 2, 4 oz velvetta blocks.

    By far, one of my favorite mac and cheese recipies! It is now my go to for comfort food. I varied up the cheeses because I tend to have a few different ones on hand and it was absolutely amazing.

    This is a favorite in our house! I make this at least once a month if not more. This is the perfect comfort food 👍🏻

    This was very yummy! I would recommend to use 1.5 pounds of pasta. I had leftover cheese sauce. I would definitely make this again.
