We have been making this recipe for a while now and I just had to post. This recipe is a keeper! The whole family absolutely loves it. The only change I make is to skip the garlic salt and add about 4 cloves of crushed garlic to the cheese sauce and increase the salt a bit. I cook the pasta and the broccoli in the same pot/water at the same time. While that's going on, I've got the cheese sauce in another pan and while it is baking, clean up goes quickly. Very glad to have found this winner of a recipe!

Very Rich & Tasty! I doubled the amount of pasta and added about 1/2 tsp. of prepared mustard for some extra tang. I also cooked the broccoli with the pasta and added an onion. I've made this a couple of times and will definitely make this again.

Megooo!!!

this was so good!! and so easy! the sauce took like 5 mins max then i was waiting forr the noodles to cook, so i had to keep stirring the sauce, so i would wait a few mins after you get the noodles going to start the sauce.
