I made this recipe for a church gathering and everyone raved about it. The only thing I changed was using less brown sugar. Everyone said it was the best mac & cheese they ever had!

I am sorry. This was down right awful. You are better off just sticking to making a cheese sauce via rue. Brown sugar does not go with cheese, and contrary to what other reviews may have said the cheese soup tastes very processed.

This was delicious! I usually don't like baked mac n' cheese, but this was perfect. I didn't use the brown sugar, as another reviewer suggested, and it was still fantastic! The best part about it for me was the fact that it didn't dry out when I reheated it for lunch. Also, I had never tried Havarti cheese before, so I was nervous about it, but I will definitely use the cheese and this recipe again!!!
