I enjoyed it, a different version of mac & cheese. But it calls for way too much pasta, that didn't even fit into the baking dish. I used about 2 cups instead of 5.

This was really good. I used cheddar instead of fontina. It did need salt but other than that, I thought it was excellent. My husband and kids liked it too - and they are very picky about their mac and cheese!!

i followed the comments below and added some seasonings right out of the gate. i also added some baked/seasoned chicken and steamed broccoli. i didn't have fontina cheese, so i substituted aged white cheddar and it worked out just fine. also added some paprika, cayenne, and a dash of tabasco just for a tiny (but necessary) kick. all in all, a good base recipe to tweak for next time.

I thought it was bland... needs more flavor

This is pretty good although a tad on the bland side. I'm not sure what I would do to it if I made it again. I did add pepper to the mix, but it didn't seem to be enough. It was good enough that my whole family had two helpings each though.

Fantastic "white" mac and cheese. I spiced it up a little bit with 6 pepper spice and crispy chopped bacon added on top. If you die--you die with a smile on your face!!!! I agree--don't comment on the recipe about fat and calories..there are other great recipes here involving that concern for others. Thanks for the recipe!

I agree, do not comment on a recipe if you didn't try it. If the recipe doesn't work for you because of the fat or calorie content then don't make it. I added chicken and broccoli and it was fantastic. Might try some fresh baby spinach next time instead of the broccoli.

If you are not making recipe then DO NOT REVIEW-This forum is to help people determine if recipe works not to worry about health issues..that said this recipe came out GREAT-I agree chicken-carrotts or maybe even brocolli would be good addition and for those calorie worry people would not add many... then you have a whole meal add a salad bam -dinner solved-we are preparing again for Thanksgiving as written above

Sounds good but I can't in good conscience make this for my family with 850 calories and 39g of fat per serving. Hubby has already had 2 heart attacks he doesn't need another one!

Don't you just love simplicity?! When I saw this recipe, I thought, duh...that's too easy. It's great b/c of that! And I did my own addition as others suggested. I did add chicken and spring peas and cut up carrots. Instead of parmesian cheese, I added pepper jack to add a bit of a kick to it. Yummo. Thanks!
