We really, really love this. I made it for a casserole night and it went down a treat there also.  :)

Cookie1 could you make this up to putting in oven and freezing it? And just take out of freezer to go in oven? Thanks  :)

I'm eating this RIGHT NOW and it's delicious! Added some parsley as we had half a bunch going yellow. Yummm. Love that I can make the bechamel sauce with skinny milk just so it's not QUITE so naughty -- just the full fat cheese to worry about. ;)

Thank you!

We love this, I quiet often make it without the chicken to have as a side dish. Yummy :D

You don't know what you are missing Uni. Mac and Cheese with bacon is a regular quick dinner for us.

What's not to love with pasta and oozey cheese  ;D



I just added 200g of really smoked cooked bacon, and lots of cracked pepper.
I might try adding seeded mustard next time, with the chicken.
Thanks cookie  :)

Well I just made this for the 1st time, my 19month old daughter sat there and fed herself a whole bowl and then kept scrapping her empty bowl till she was given more. Getting her to eat is usually a very stressfull time and most dinners end up on the floor. I have never ever seen her eat like that before and as a mum there is no greater feeling then watching your fussy toddler eat a whole meal not to mention I have seen her get so much on her spoon.  Thanks so much  :)

Cookie,I have never been a huge fan of Macaroni Cheese and was a bit skeptical on making this but  :o it blew our socks off here.I added some pepper and sliced spring onions plus for the cheddar I used a smokey flavoured variety. Thank you for a lovely tasting recipe,it will be one added to my favourites.

I like to preview my posts Judy when I add a photo just to make sure the pic works,and reread what I have written. It seems to never come up for preview and Im waiting,waiting! So in the end I copy the text,click out of the post then go back to it,paste it in and voila the preview will work so then I can submit it. Only with photo's it seems to do this but.

Thermo18 I don't know how this would freeze. Perhaps someone else could help you. We never have any leftovers to freeze.

Don't you love it when someone bumps a recipe when you are looking for something to do with leftover chicken ;D  I had 3 chicken drumsticks leftover from last night and they yielded 200g chicken, yes they were pretty big ones.

This recipe serves 6 in this house and I have frozen 2 lots of 2 portions.  I decided to go with the option GNMI posted as I was thawing some of my tomato soup out for tea anyway and it sounded interesting. I just replaced 220g of the milk with the tomato soup and the consistency was perfect.  I think it cut the richness of me using full cream milk and full fat cheese which I don't normally buy but I picked up the wrong milk this week and the full fat cheese was so much cheaper for 1kg than low fat cheese.  We both really enjoyed it.

My mum (and now I) have always mixed in 1/2 tin (approx 220g) of Condensed tomato soup into the white/cheese sauce before pouring it over the pasta.  Great flavour boost!
