Well, when low on cash, cheese spaghetti is quick, filling, cheap and very tasty -- not a great choice for the lactose intolerant. Use your desired amount of cheese (1 lb of cheese would be the most), and your desired amount pepper and garlic.

This was good and very versatile you can add anything to it. Like ground beef and tomatoes tuna and peas chicken and salsa and corn whatever you want but it's good just the way it is. Very filling cheap and easy to make. My kids loved it. I will make this agagin and again. Just make sure you use spagetti or a thicker noodle I used angel hair and it turn out to be a clumpy mess. I also taught my kids 10 14 how to make this it's just as easy as the box kind but better for them.... Read More

I don't know how this could feed four as I halved the recipe for and for one it was hardly enough food. This was an easy recipe and I will definitely make it again. I did vary it however! I didn't add as much cheese garlic powder and pepper as it called for after cutting it in half. I also added capers to it for another little touch and instead of garlic powder I added a garlic/herb spice. And it turned out creamy and good. Very filling! Read More

A really good quick recipe! To avoid the lumpiness in the cheese sauce that someone mentioned I made the sauce separately and then added it to the spaghetti when both were done. I did make a few alterations... I used grated cheddar instead of American cheese. Because the cheese itself is a bit oily I'll cut down a little on the margarine next time (I also used margarine instead of butter). I also used soy milk instead of regular milk. And I mixed in the garlic powder and black pepper instead of using it on top just before the dish is served. Sooooo good! Thanks for sharing the recipe! Read More

My husband's family loves this. I only use a few dashes of garlic salt and black pepper. Not exactly what I consider a 5 star recipe but it gets rave reviews with his family even though I consider it a bit bland and starchy myself. It's always a hit when I bring it. Read More

Delicious! It adjusts very well for single servings. Very easy to make and as an added bonus very easy to clean up as well. I made this at 1:30am no simple feat for a klutz like I and it turned out wonderfully. The cheese melted quite well over the spaghetti and the bits of cheese that clumped together were great anyways giving you the odd burst of flavour. Read More

This was horrible. The cheese was way to thick and I used half of what it said to use. I could only eat three bites before I threw it away. Read More
