Just average and just okay as written. Because I love my macaroni and cheese creamy I love it made with Velveeta. You can't ask for a smoother, creamier sauce. But a good macaroni and cheese c...

Didn't really need the extra cheese on top but is good either way . I've been making this for years after trying all the "gourmet" and celebrity chef recipes who scoff at Velveeta. Sorry, but ...

I like rubbing butter on the bottom of the pan and shake some parmesean cheese over it before I pour the mac mixture in. Layering the chedder is good too!
