This was delicious but the 6 servings thing? NO WAY! Six sumo wrestlers, a side dish, it made enough for many, many, MANY portions. There was no mention of an oven setting, only the timing for baking - I tried 350F and that seemed to work OK. Mixing everything in a big bowl worked better than trying to mix it in the baking dish, too. Overall a good dish :)


Good mac-n-cheese and this is coming from someone who's favorite food is mac-n-cheese! I used a different shaped pasta and Monterey Jack cheese in the dish and cheddar on top and it still tasted great.
