General consensus was a hit. Although will probably need to fry off the bacon a tad before adding it to the mix.

One kid wouldn’t eat it, but hey can’t win them all, lol. Now to start integrating veg into it so it’s a tad healthier, but very yummy.

Did get a tad dry, but just added the water to rinse out the Chicken Tonight sauce & worked out fine.

Thanks so much for this recipe.
The kids LOVE it. I only add 1x Jar of sauce; 250gm block cream cheese; 1x 250ml cooking cream; Milk accordingly; Italian herbs; S&P; chicken stock powder and a mixture of baking cheeses.
Now they love it, I will slowly introduce grated veggies… lol
Such an easy dinner. Thank you x

Just did a 1/4 batch of the Sneaky Mac n Cheese in my 1.5 lt. As per some of the comments I saw I doubled the Chicken Tonight, I also substituted the bacon for ham.

Heated up the sauce for 20 min first in the slow cooker (saw that being mentioned a few other recipes), added the pasta and cooked for an hour and 10 min.
