    Will definitely make this again. Doesn't taste like the 'traditional' mac n cheese but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's still delicious and satisfying. Husband loved it!  -  17 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I made this for my son who cannot eat dairy. I used olive oil and unsweetened almond milk instead and it has an uncanny flavor to original mac and cheese! The rest of my family said that they preferred it over real mac and cheese, but I'm sure that they were just caught up in the moment.  -  23 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used considerably less garlic in this. It doesn't taste like the boxed kind of mac 'n cheese but that isn't a bad thing. It's creamy and quite savory. I used gluten free penne because I didn't have elbow pasta. This is very easy to put together. Thank you for the recipe.  -  10 Jan 2017  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
