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. :)

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

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!

I loved this recipe. I added the tablespoon of mustard. It was great and I don't even like mustard.
