Bland!

Another variation on mac and cheese. I used ww tortelini, and added spinach to made it a complete meal. I will make it again, however, I will use a more favorable cheese and add at least a tbsp. of dijon mustard. I'll recommend this recipe with reservations.

Good recipe for Meatless Mondays.

Good, but needs a bit more

I added peas and grated carrots, plus chopped garlic and Parmesan cheese. I also added grilled chicken breasts, cut up to provide meat to the meal. My family liked it this way, but next time I may try the Gruyer cheese since others seem to think that would be a stronger cheese. Also, it isn't easy to find lo-fat items in a small town, so my final calorie and fat count was probably higher.

Didn't take too long; could fix ahead, refrigerate, and then bake; easy to change to a main dish;

Bland dish, won't likely make again.

I was in the mood to try a new recipe and use one of the casserole dishes that have remained in the box on top of my refrigerator since last Christmas, so this seemed like a good option. The prep wasn't bad--it took me about 25 mins from the moment I started prepping to the time that I had it in the oven and all of my ingredients put away.

The finished product wasn't completely satisfactory though. As other have said, this recipe is bland. I added a tbsp of butter to the casserole while it baked, but otherwise I prepared it as per the directions. The sauce is just missing something, perhaps spicing it up might help. Also, I feel like the recipe calls for too many bread crumbs. I might reduce the bread crumbs by about 3 or 4 tbsps if I were to make it again. I don't plan to make it again, however. It wasn't very good. It wasn't gross, it just wasn't good.

Easy to make, doesn't take long.
