This seemed like a lot more work than it was worth. You've got the oven on, pasta boiling on one burner, milk and flour and the cheeses trying to burn up on the other burner, and melted butter shooting all over your microwave--all for this one SIDE DISH. I made a double batch so I could share with a friend and their family seemed to like it. I was just happy my husband was doing the chicken in the smoker because no other food could be prepared in my kitchen while this was being made.
