I've made this dish in the past with almost every variation I can think of - chicken, tuna, cream of mushroom, cream of chicken etc. My favorite however has been using condensed cheddar cheese soup and adding peas, then baking it in a casserole and putting french fried onions on top. That variation got me the ultimate compliment from my boyfriend: "better than my mom's." Read More

First I choose this recipe b/c it was one of those nights when you want to spend very little time in the kitchen - I was tired and I was out of frozen pizza's and I haven't bought a box of mac n cheese in ages BUT my daughter needs to eat so I found this recipe. Seemed simple enough! I cut the recipe in half b/c I wasn't even hungry and reading other reviews they all said "not gourmet but good." Unfortunately I didn't find this comforting or all that good. I did add a little broccoli and used a can of crm of chic and added a little milk for "creaminess" but I found this to be pretty bad. I tried to pawn this off to my daughter for dinner (she eats almost everything) and she would hardly touch it. Luckily it didn't make much as I halved the recipe so I threw it away and to my dismay had to find something new for dinner. Sorry. Read More

My man isn't always good in the kitchen but I gave him this recipe and they turned out good. He thought they were bland but my 4 year old asked me if I'd make it every day! She's never said that before so I foresee myself making this in the future (but no not every day) Read More

Try this...use only 1 can cream of mush and use 1 can cream of celery in a saucepot. Add 1-1/2 cans milk to thin out & heat through. Here's the clincher...ad 10 slices velveeta (melts better than cheddar) and to top it off...add 1 can Rotel tomatoes with green chiles! Dump it into the drained noodles and I'm telling you...was Yum-yum! My picky son loved it and hubby ate seconds! Read More

Excellent recipe simple and very kid-friendly. Not gourmet cuisine but comfort food for a crowd. It can be improved with the addition of 1) a package of frozen broccoli florets cooked; 2) parmesan cheese to taste; and 3) a little milk to make it saucier. Also watch the pepper! Read More

A very yummy quick recipe if you're craving comfort food in a hurry. I was surprised at how good it was! Be sure to use both cans of condensed soup because the noodles will be dry the next day if you don't. I used Cream of Chicken instead of mushroom - turned out delicious! Would recommend using a bit more garlic salt for more savoriness. Read More

Eh I wasn't impressed with this even with some changes to jazz it up... I used one can of crm of mush one can crm of chick and one can chedder cheese soup (I had read that it was dry so I wanted mine to be moist enough). Added mushrooms and french style green beans. Used onion and garlic powder. My husband thought it was good (he added hot sauce and sour cream though). I will eat the leftovers for lunch maybe after some time together the flavor will be more bold. But I don't think I'll make this again. Read More
