I made this for dinner the other day, but the kids have been sick and off their food - so to my delight, there was some still leftover in the fridge when I got home from work tonight.  This recipe is so tasty - even cold and straight from the fridge  :D  Must try the tomato soup variation sometime soon too.

Thanks for a wonderful, easy recipe.

Miss 6 has been taking this in her thermos for lunches at school....and it always comes home empty! A great recipe, thanx. Also...yes it can be frozen, tho you might want to add a bit more milk before freezing as it can go gluggy.  :)
:D

My daughter really enjoyed the macaroni cheese I made the other night. The sauce is so simple and delish made in TMX.  To save time I cooked my pasta on the stove top so it was all done at the same time.  I also like my cheesy Mac to be browned on top so I chuck on some TMX herbed breadcrumbs extra Parmesan and sesame seeds then pop under hot grill for 2 mins.

Thank you for sharing this yummy recipe.

I was having a lengthy dinner table discussion tonight with DH and didn't hear a peep from DD2 (I almost forgot she was there) as she was loving her meal so much... until she interrupted us with "more dinner"!
And the bonus.....it was so delicious none of her dinner ended up on the floor!

We will certainly be having this one again  :)

Kids loved this tonight, had seconds and there is still heaps left. I grilled the bacon and chicken with some onion and boiled the pasta on the stove. Added some dried breadcrumbs on top for extra crunch also. Yummo!

Made this for dinner last night. I was supposd to be having spagetthi bolognese but just didn't feel like it and everyone else was out for a few hours so thought I would make this. I cheated and just included the cheese in with the other sauce ingredients to make a cheese sauce, i also added some cayenne and mustard for a bit more flavour, didn't have any chicken so added some onion. I also used up some spreadable mersey valley cheese that DD bought and no one liked, and used some other scraps of leftover cheese. It would have been great with some parmesan and parsley crumbs on top but I couldn't be bothered washing and drying the tmx to make them.

Now that I'm writing all the changes down it probably doesn't resemeble the original at all!!!   It was very quick, easy and tasty and was great reheated for lunch today. I did find the sauce a little rich when I had it last night but today was fine.

Purée a couple of tablespoons and get back to us.  Poor Geoff.  Has he been having trouble swallowing his food at home?
