If you are looking for a creamy, comfort food type, Mac & Cheese... this isn't it! Personally not what I think of when I want Mac & Cheese. The milk curdled and it looked like cottage cheese had been mixed in. You know how Cheddar Cheese separates, and doesn't melt to a creamy consistency? Well that’s what it did! You could feel the graininess of the Cheddar Cheese in your mouth. If you are going to try this recipe, I would recommend a creamier cheese, with a better melting consistency. If you use salt in your cooking, this definitely could have used salt (yes, even with all that cheese) and some additional flavors, perhaps garlic powder or onion powder. After reading other reviews, I doubled the cheese but that didn’t help. I used 8 oz. Cheddar and 8 oz. of a Monterey Jack/Colby Blend, 1/2 tsp. white pepper and 1/2 tsp. dry mustard powder. Easy isn’t always good! Cooking the macaroni and making a cheese sauce isn’t really that much more difficult or time consuming and, bottom line, well worth a little extra effort. I won’t be making this recipe again.
