I'm not sure why everyone else is complaining about this recipe, it is a lighter mac and cheese, so if your expecting something really creamy, rich and thick, go find a more fattening recipe! This was excellent.... a great alternative for a lighter, healthier version of mac and cheese, if its too bland for you or not cheesy enough, just add more cheese on top and melt it on in the oven, it didn't need more salt for me... it was perfect. Will make again!

Super tasty--- I added 1/3c cheddar (just because I had it leftover) and used 3 cups of pasta (because that's what I had too). I think it could use some more breadcrumbs on top-- but no worries, the butter could have handled more than 1/4c.

i would have to agree with the other post. I added more cheddar and hot pepper flakes, and it was still bland. I usually love pasta with spinach but I would not make this again. It even looked unappealing with its milky-ish sauce. I'll stick with my other macaroni and cheese recipes.

Way too blah, even when adding more cheese and some ground red pepper. Incredibly disappointing. There's a Cooking Light recipe for a stove top mac with roasted cherry tomatoes that's much better. A box of Kraft mac and cheese with spinach thrown in there is less effort and tastier than this recipe.
