This is a pretty simple recipe using cream of chicken soup that can be used when you have a large group to feed. I got it from my dad who feeds 8 people, and this does the job.

This recipe is easy and better than box mac & cheese. I use cream of mushroom soup insead and mix in quite a bit more grated cheese rather than slices of cheese. I skip the tomato and then bake it with herbed bread crumbs and dots of butter on top. Read More

This isn't bad it just isn't great. One benefit is that it makes a lot and is good for leftovers. One thing that I did that my husband liked was add breadcrumbs to the top. Read More

This was a good base recipe. Like other users had mentioned I used 1 can each of cream of chicken and cream of mushroom soup. I also used diced tomatoes in place of the tomato slices. Instead of layering the cheese & tomatoes I mixed shredded cheddar cheese and the diced tomatoes into the hot macaroni & soup mixture. I also sprinkled breadcrumbs on top. My husband and 3-year-old son loved it! Read More

I really love this! Of course pasta and cheese IS always a winner! I did alter a bit in place of two cans of cream of chicken I added a can of cream of cheddar cheese and a can of cream of mushroom. And also instead of the 4 tomatoes I used a can of diced tomatoes flavored with basil and garlic and mixed it right in the macaroni. Just sooo yummy! Read More

Very tasty. Instead of milk I added Fat Free Half and Half - creamier and thicker than milk. I also used shredded vs. sliced cheddar so that I could top the bake with it to make it golden brown (and add a little extra inside for a cheesier flavor). I also topped with sprinkled bread crumbs and paprika. Read More

This recipe has become a staple in our household. It's wonderful and excellent for leftovers too. The tomatoes add a fresh taste to the rest of the flavors. It comes highly recommended! Read More

I had to substitute shredded cheddar for the slices but it was still a tasty "quickie" solution! Read More

This recipe was good for me because I need to go grocery shopping & I didn't have hardly anything to make dinner out of. It was good for a quick throw together dinner but I don't think I would make it otherwise--it wasn't quite cheesy enough for me. If I did make it again I would mix the cheese in not just layer it on top. I added breadcrumbs (which I did like) and I didn't have fresh tomatoes so I used drained diced. Read More
