I have made the Homemade Macaroni and Cheese, p 263, numerous times. It’s definitely a hit in my family and for every guest I’ve made it for. I usually add a little dried mustard and quite a bit of fresh cracked pepper, restaurant-style. I have used different types of cheese, whatever I have on hand, usually it’s Kraft Classic Melts (American and Cheddar mixed shredded). I have made it with or without the bread crumb topping, and it’s good both ways.

Hi Juliebean, and welcome.
My family loves this too. Dry mustard is definitely an "always add" for us, too, and I have been know to throw in some minced garlic on occasion.

Hi! ladies, :D

Julie, thanks for the review along with your tips to enhance the dish.

:lol: Kathy, a little garlic here and there is always welcome when it comes to the savory things. I too, have a tendency to add it, and it's all my Mother's fault, because so did she. It simply gives it that bit of added punch, doesn't it?

I like to keep some cheeses and pastas on hand, along with a bit of a variety of soups even though most are high in sodium, because it's so easy to quickly throw together another dish if someone is either in a hurry, or someone unexpected comes, and if properly stored those things really aren't that perishable.

I'm so happy to see a review on this. When the weekly dinner menu was being made yesterday this was a "maybe" on our list. We didn't add it for this week, but we will definitely have it next week!!

I just made this one on Thursday. Quick and easy, and the kids loved it. The refrigerated Alfredo sauce is one of those items I'd never tried before I got the Dinner Doctor.

It's not too hard to make homemade cheese sauce, but this tastes good and saves me another pot to clean.
