This was OK. I did make a few tweaks though - so the 3 star rating is for the original recipe. I "fixed" this by making a roux first with 1 Tbsp of butter + 1 Tbsp flour. Then I whisked in the evaporated milk and added the cheese to make the sauce. Then added in macaroni that I cooked separately. I skipped the breadcrumbs entirely. Kielbasa and mac & cheese are two of my favorite comfort foods, together they are delicious!

This is so easy and a great comfort food! Who doesn't love mac & cheese? I served it with green beans and corn muffins. Thanks for this wonderful recipe!

This was pretty good. I skipped the bread crumbs on top because I felt like it didn't need any. I think next time I'll kick the spice level up and triple the hot sauce required. I feel like the spice and the Kielbasa will go great together.
