My first go with this recipe was just as it was written. I like my mac and cheese to have a strong flavor. This was good but I wanted something with more zing. I also thought it was a bit too "dry."
My second go I made a few changes. I used only Extra Sharp Cheddar and I adjusted the milk to 4.75 cups. It was perfect. Everyone came back for seconds and even thirds.
