The flavors in this dish were really great but it was dry. Perhaps by melting the cheeses in a cup of milk and then tossing with the pasta would distribute the flavors and give it a creamier texture after baking. I used turkey bacon in place of pork. We will definitely try it again with the milk.

I saved 1/2 cup of water from the pasta water and added to make it a bit more moist. I also tried to use less butter by replacing it with olive oil. Kids and husband loved it!

Over 800 calories & 43 grams of fat for a mac and cheese recipe is ludicrous. After looking at the NI, I'd never make this recipe. There are so many delicious mac and cheese recipes around that are much healthier than this.
