    Hard to go wrong with this one. I doubled the recipe and substituted in some Swiss cheese for the cheddar.

    The top layer was good! The bottom wasn’t salty enough and I think I should put more cheese for mine.

    Great! It's a quick thing to throw in the oven and the kids love watching and helping make it!

    We added bread crumbs and bacon to the top layer which gave it texture. The meal came out great! Very easy to upsize and share with friends. A suggestion is to add different types of cheeses to give it more flavour. Would definitely recommend this recipe to others.

    Yummy and cheesy but needs something else to give it a bit of flavour

    This recipe may have been easy but it wasn't the tastiest macaroni and cheese I've had. The cheese on top was too crunchy and hard and i think it would have been better to cover the macaroni in the oven.

    Whenever I make this I add Italian breadcrumbs toasted with butter on the top and a variety of cheeses. I can (and have) eat it cold the next day because I can't wait long enough to reheat it!

    This recipe had a little bit too much butter for me, not sure if there is a less buttery option, however I definitely added more cheese, delicious!
