    Delicious! I added seasoned chicken! The pasta didn't stick together really so we used spoons to scoop. No complaints though!

    Made this once about to prepare it again. My kids ate it all in two days out of a big pan I made. Great, isn’t dry like most Mac n cheese dishes I’ve tasted from others. A must try

    It was a bit dry to me but my husband loves mac and cheese so he didn't complain. Its definitely easy and quick to make. I'll probably make it again just tweak it some

    The sour cream was a nice add
    Terrible, tasteless. Not as expected and weird texture
