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

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

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

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

My kids loved this! It made a ton and I will probably cut it in half next time. I substituted cream of chicken soup for the mushroom. 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

We made this when we went camping. I used canned chicken so it was easy to transport the ingredients and easy to cook. It was delicious too! Read More
