Made this for pasta party. Doubled recipe. Very yummy. Big hit. Salt and pepper was plenty to keep the blandness away.

So very good! Adding to favorites! One review mentioned lack of flavor so I added pepper after each pasta layer and also on top layer of cheese. I also used veggie pasta and this was phenomenal!

The texture was good but it seemed to lack taste.. Not sure what it needs but may do a little experimenting.. It was super easy!

I've made this twice and it always turns out perfect, every other recipe I've tried are very time consuming and don't taste as good.

This was great. I've tried many Mac & cheese recipes but most are tedious and never turn out quite right. This recipe was extremely easy and very tasty.
