this recipe was good. i usually like my mac n cheese more creamy and smooth. this wasn’t, probably because i used the packaged shredded cheese which usually has ingredients on it so it won’t stick. i’ll have to try freshly grated cheese next time. hopefully that’ll make the difference between chunky mac n cheese and smooth, creamy mac n cheese =]
