I made a few small changes... I didn't include the pimientos because I didn't have them, and I added smoked paprika because I love it. I thought this dish was creamy and warm and perfect for a cold night. My family agrees.
Better than the box. Understand: Kraft Mac and cheese is my GO TO comfort food, so this is SUCH high praise. Most nights, I try to make special, unique dinners, but some nights are just hot dogs and Mac and cheese nights, until you reMember you don't have Mac and cheese. Until tonight. I think this replaces my box. I did add a TB of cream cheese in the cream phase (partly because I had 1/2 and 1/2 instead of heavy.) And I tossed in a little Dijon and garlic powder and left out pimentos (because I am a purist when it comes to Mac and cheese). So delicious. so easy. I will no longer go to the box. THANK YOU.
Great! However i did not use any salt because the brand of chicken broth had so much therefore i added some steamed peas to help with the sodium. I also didn't have pimentos but smoked paprika worked great.
I did not have pimento either but loved the splash of color so added a half red poblano diced and sautéed. My cheese was not sharp - I think sharp would have made it tastier. Was looking for couscous my teenage grandson would eat. Success will try again w sharp cheddar.
Had to make slight changes because we didn't have all ingredients so we used sour cream instead of heavy cream and paprika instead of the other spices. This recipe seems flexible though and I'll probably add garlic onions and spinach next time. Wouldn't say that it tastes exactly like Mac & Cheese because the texture is very different. Still very good tho!
