    I used suggestions from many different people to make this a tasty recipe. I cooked celery, onion, and fresh mushrooms in some marg. and added it to the pasta. I also stirred some seasoned pepper, thyme, garlic, parsley, oregano, and seasoned salt into the veg. while they were cooking. I used a full can of milk and added some lt. sour cream to the soup mixture. For the chz., I used about a cup of mild cheddar and a cup of sharp cheddar (both reduced fat). For the topping, I mixed seasoned breadcrumbs with saltine crackers and about two tablespoons of marg. I also sprinkled a little sharp cheese under the topping. This filled a 9x13 pan. My husband loved this and went back for seconds. I definately recommend making changes to the original recipe to jazz it up, otherwise this would be very bland.  -  05 Feb 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    This was really good, but I did alter the recipe slightly. I sauteed a medium sized onion along with 1 clove of garlic and added that to the cheese sauce. The only change I made to the cheese sauce was to add 1 tsp of dry mustard powder. I cooked 4 cups of macaroni as suggested by other reviewers and I also added about 1-1.5 cups of diced leftover ham. Lastly, instead of breadcrumbs for the topping, I crushed up some Ritz crackers, mixed with some shredded cheddar cheese and dumped a few tablespoons of melted butter of the top; this is a fabulous topping that my mother uses when she makes mac & cheese. The dish turned out really, really good...but I think next time I make it, I will add 3 cups of macaroni only, DH and I would like the cheese sauce a little more moist, but this is only a personal preference.  -  08 Nov 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)

    Wow, this was a great comfort food casserole, so quick and easy. I followed previous suggestions and my own ideas. I used 4 cups macaroni, 2 cups shredded SHARP Cheddar cheese, the regular cream of mushroom (NOT fat free/low fat), used a WHOLE can of milk, added 1/4 cup my favorite grainy mustard (per previous suggestions), baked 15 minutes and then added my version of the bread crumbs for the last 15 minutes. For the topping I used 1/4 cup Italian bread crumbs, 10 crushed saltines, 1/4 cup (will use 1/2 cup next time), and moistened with 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (could use melted butter). This was moist and delicious.  -  05 Oct 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
