I threw in a little concentrated veg stock about an hour from the end as it was looking dry but I probably neednโ€™t have bothered – it came together beautifully when the cheese was added and was really tasty. Thumbs up from daughter too.

Hubby regularly asks for this. He and the kids love it. So do I. Family favourite.

Very tasty. I skipped boiling the macaroni and just put it in raw. It needed an extra half an hour and worked just fine ๐Ÿ™‚

I found this a little bland, so I added extra Tuscan seasoning, a tablespoon of garlic and some pepper and it turned out nice.
