1 1/2 cups
shredded Cheddar cheese
hot pepper sauce (such as Tabasco®)
salt and ground black pepper to taste
Tasty! Hubby thought it was a little dry, but I thought it was fine. I had some leftover ditalini in the fridge, so I just used that, which made this so quick to put together. I did use shredded light velveeta, b/c I have no luck w/ cheddar melting good for me. I topped it w/ some shredded cheddar and panko. I would make this again! Thanks for sharing. :)
Teenage daughter said it was too dry. will continue to look for a nice, creamy version.
I made this last night and WOW is it good!! Never would have thought that mustard and hot pepper sauce would add such punch!
The only change I made was to toss the pasta in fried butter with garlic (to add a bit more flavour to the noodles) and I topped with bread crumbs / sliced tomatoes / parm. cheese / salt & pepper.
One thing I have a problem with is with the cheese and how it stays in shredded "strips" in the casserole... next time I will pre melt the cheese so it is smooth and creamy before adding to the noodles.
My family thought this mac n cheese recipe was awesome! I haven't found one they like, so this is amazing. I did add a little more milk and low fat cheese to make it a little creamier, but other than that, it was perfect! Thank you for submitting it!
Very easy to prepare and tasty. My family all gave thumbs up.
Yummy and easy!!!
My 3 year old son helps me make it. :)
I added diced honey baked turkey ham and added a little garlic salt to taste. I used shells instead of elbows and it works just fine. My family loved it and the smell is really great
This was very yummy! However, I did make some modifications. I added about a third more cheese and 2-3 tablespoons of butter--it was not dry at all! I also used Dijon mustard and cumin powder instead of hot sauce. Finally, I put a layer of Parmesan on top to give it a nice crusty brown top. Delicious and easy!!
