I liked this recipe. I did change a few things though. I used a 28oz can of diced tomatoes, doubled the cheese(next time i'll triple it) and added onion powder(I didn't have onion salt as someone suggested they used) It was really tasty, not dry at all. I also cooked my pasta to Al Dente so it wouldn't turn to mush. Next time I will cook it for 30 minutes instead of 45 mins because I think that is too long. The pasta is already cooked and the sauce is hot. Otherwise this was yummy and I think it is a keeper!



This recipe was great! I especially liked the crunchy cheese and bread crumb topping. I added more cheese than asked for, and added 1/4 cup Monterrey Jack in the macaroni mixture, also. I added 1/2 tsp. onion salt since my husband loves that in macaroni and cheese. Sprinkle the top with fresh ground pepper. This is a keeper!



This is a great base recipe- like a blank slate. I made a lot of changes, to fit my taste. I used a pre-shredded "Italian" cheese mix, and I used the whole bag (~2cups). I also added a little gorgonzola, to punch up the flavor. I used fresh tomatoes, not canned, and also added some steamed broccoli. I crushed some wheat crackers for the topping. It was delicious, everyone had thirds!
