I was looking for a Mac and Cheese recipe without the use of cheese food (Velveeta) and canned soup because no stores sell that here. This was really easy, not too salty (I like that) and quick. The only thing I didn't use was tomatoes out of personal preference. Saw absolutely no reason to make all the changes everyone suggests -- plenty of sauce, came together fine, plenty cheesy. Really good! :)

DELICIOUS and EASY!! I love that this recipe doesn't use any canned soup--too much sodium! Changes I made: sour cream in place of the yogurt, canned diced tomatos in place of the stewed tomatoes, a little more cheese. This will be our mac and cheese recipe from now on.

Delicious and so FAST and EASY! My kids loved it too. Like some others here, I too added more sharp cheddar. I also used diced canned tomatoes with onion, a tad more yogurt, (great secret ingredient by the way..tangy!) twice as much basil, and 2 minced garlic cloves. I also added some extra shredded cheese on top and put it under the broiler for 3 minutes to brown the top. YUMMY!!! I think next time I'll try it with some browned ground turkey.
