Wow, gotta say in 14 yrs of marriage, this is the first time my husband [mac & cheese afficionado] liked homemade however, unlike my usual creedo, I did tweak a bit. I pretty much used this recipe as a basic & made only slight changes - NO SPINACH being the biggest one!! Neither of us like it cooked. I did have Ians WW crumbs, but instead used a quarter cup/1 tablespoon evoo, Pepperjack cheese instead of Cheddar, Dreamfields elbows, and added 1 tablespoon of Dijon mustard. Not big time deviations. This was so good a recipe that it's the only mac & cheese we will eat going forward. I teamed it with Apricot Glazed Chicken from Epicurious.com and we were in soul food heaven......on this blizzarding Buffalo, New York day. So good and so easy to make! Thanks EW!
