This is the first time I've tried making homemade Mac and Cheese. I followed this recipe to a T and sadly, I was disappointed. I had a 500g box of macaroni and when I converted it to ounces it was 17 point something ounces so I took a chance and used the whole thing. There was a lot of sauce when I poured it over the pasta, I was a little worried it would be soupy when it came out of the oven. It was surprisingly dry. I was amazed at how much it soaked into the pasta. The flavor was not very cheesy and I even made sure to buy sharp cheddar as it is not something I would typically have on hand. My first mistake was using the whole box of macaroni. I think I would follow other reviewers suggestions of only using 12 oz of pasta and increase the amount of cheese if I was ever to make this again. I was excited about the topping but I think it would be better if there was more sauce. Also, I used ground thyme and I really didn't notice the taste at all. I think I will keep searching for a mac and cheese recipe.
