This simple to make Mac n' Cheese is the best I've ever had! We don't have a family get together without it, and everybody that trys it wants the recipe. So here you go.

"I did like this dish. I would serve it again, but with modifications. I would not use as much corn starch - it was a little sticky - I would undercook the noodles a little and add a little more water. Once the sauce was absorbed and it had cooked warmed for the hour in the crock pot, the noodles were a little over-done for my taste....but overall very good and leftovers worked well, too!"

I've tried a few of the Mac n cheese recipes I've seen on here and this one definitely ranks up at the top considering the taste and simplicity of the recipe. Really good! Perfect blend of cheese and creaminess. Will be making again:)

I had such high hopes for this since it has so many good reviews, but unfortunately no one in my family liked this mac & cheese at all. And that says a lot since my 3 kids usually love anything containing cheese.

Delicious and super rich!!! I reduced the cheese and increased the noodles and still felt like I was biting into a block of cheese. I'll just keep playing with the proportions to suit our taste. Thank you for the recipe

Excellent..I just reduced the water amount since I didn't put in crock pot. I also added 1 egg. Then I kept some of the milk, cornstarch mixture for the top right before I put in oven. Oh! I also used cheeze wiz and mexican blend cheese.. but the base was the exact recipe as stated..I found my new mac and cheese..thank u darling!!

Delish! My family loved this recipe. I used skim milk in place of evaporated and it worked just fine. I also sprinkled with smoked paprika. Yum!

A very scrumptious recipe that can be made very easily! Has a great flavor and we will make again. Seems like it could use more noodles next time.
