"A very quick and easy fix to a tasty side-dish. Fancy, designer mac and cheese often costs forty or fifty dollars to prepare when you have so many exotic and expensive cheeses, but they aren't always the best tasting. This recipe is cheap and tasty."
Hmm. None of these ingredients are on sale today.

shredded Cheddar cheese
For a simple macaroni and cheese recipe as the title suggests, this recipe was fabulous! I'm throwing out my box macaroni! My son loved this recipe as well. In the future, I may add some spice or what not but this is an amazing base mac & cheese recipe.
Skip liked it. I think it needs more flavor/spices.
I was starving and discovered that I had just enough milk, cheddar cheese, butter, and elbow macaroni at home. So, I thought I should be able to make a quick mac and cheese. I found this recipe and was delighted that it was so easy and I thought the result was great. It hit the spot!
I think this is an awesome staple recipe. It can be tweaked for individual preferences. I added onion powder, parmesan cheese and a little bit of cayenne pepper.
I changed this recipe a little--used 12oz can of evaporated milk and a cheddar cheese-pepperjack cheese mixture. I then placed it in a 9x9" greased cake pan, added a smattering of Italian bread crumbs and baked for 15 minutes at 350 degrees.
I followed this recipe exactly, and it turned out perfectly creamy and tasty! I didn't have excessive cheese sauce like some reviewers, but I made sure that I brought my flour, butter, and milk mixture to a good boil, so maybe that made a difference??
I doubled the recipe and added cheddar sausage, garlic salt, cayenne pepper and baked at 400 for about 20 minutes for it to get brown on top.
This recipe lacked flavor, make sure you add in extra salt, seasoning, or top with bread crumbs. I've made many homemade macaroni and cheese dishes but the sauce was very runny this time. Not a bad recipe, as Christina said, it is easy to customize!
