I love to eat macaroni and cheese, especially homemade. I appreciate that this recipe does not require heavy cream. This makes the dish somewhat healthier and lighter. When boiling the macaroni, you will want to drain the pasta much earlier than the directions since it will be baked for 45 minutes. Otherwise, the macaroni will be very soft and overcooked.

I can't wait to try this, only thing is cheese is not cheap! Four cups in my area will run you about $6! Maybe if there is a sale I will try it.

Thanks for the information.

This recipe is pretty good, with one major flaw - there is WAY too much pasta. You will end up with mostly dry pasta and very little cheese/cheese sauce. Instead of 16oz pasta, you want to use 8oz pasta. This brings the mac and cheese to a more traditional cheese level.

Hello grmeebear, Though I'm not sure of any mac n cheese recipes that call for dry mustard specifically, I know we have several more mac n cheese recipes on the site. Just use the search bar above and type in Macaroni and Cheese, you'll find several to peruse through. Thanks!

I was looking for a recipe of Mac & Cheese that called for a tsp of dry mustard. Do you have other Mac & Cheese recipes??
