Hotdoxy 10 months agoMine came out dry, It had good flavor. I used small shell macaroni and a quart of half and half. Next time I am going to half the amount of flour used in the sauce.
palaumelissa 2 years agoMine came out grainy and disgusting, I read that adding the cheese while still hot does this, so wait for it to cool before adding.
