I've made this twice now, and both times it was a crowd hit - first thing gone from the table, and in record time. I used extra sharp cheddar cheese. The first time I cubed the cheese, the second time I shredded - both came out equally delicious. I also added some parm cheese to the panko topping - it browned nicely in the oven and gave it that little bit of extra flavor. I used a mix of 1/2 & 1/2 and whole milk in place of soy milk the 1st time, all skim milk the second time, and again, both were delicious (obviously the first was more rich). If you're trying to save a few calories, I forgot the melted butter the 2nd time and nobody noticed. Thanks so much for a wonderful mac & cheese recipe!

I do not think we would like the soy milk, could I substitute that with like 2% milk? The whole recipe sounds yummy except for that part. :-( Help Nana! lol

Was easy to do and my kids LOVED this! Better than making the Kraft processed Mac N Cheese.

Yummy recipe. I used skim milk & italian-style bread crumbs & it turned out delicious!

The taste was ok, but I didn't feel like the cheese distributed throughout the dish very well. It melted, but it was right where the chunk of cheese was, it didn't spread. Maybe I didn't cube it small enough, I'm not sure what went wrong. I also used italian bread crumbs for the topping and 1% milk instead of soy.
