After reading other suggestions, I put in 3 times the amount of cheese, used heavy cream instead of milk and did the Ritz cracker topping. This turned out to be the best mac & cheese I have ever had!

This was my first time making mac and cheese from scratch. Doubled cheese as others suggested and added a bit more salt and pepper. topped with 1 sleeve of crushed Ritz crackers mixed with the 4 Tbls of melted butter. Will make again and add ham or bacon to it.

Easy to make cheesy delight. I used Gruyere, Fresh Parmesan and Sharp Cheddar and made the topping of 1 sleeve crushed Ritz crackers tossed with .5 stick melted butter. YUM!
