Great recipe, I couldn't stop eating it. I added roasted green peppers and ham. Delicious.

Absolutely gross! It was really dry and tasteless. I've given up on Bobby Deens lighter recipes. This is the 2nd one that I have been burned on...never again!

I have to say this is a really good alternative to the normal high calorie and fat mac and cheese I always crave smile I really feel better about eating this version and I used greek yogurt instead of sour cream to up the protein. Thanks!

Tried this the other night and it was FABULOUS!!! My husband (the king of mac n cheese) even liked it! It does need a little more moisture, looking forward to playing around with this one! I seasoned my own plain breadcrumbs (it was all I had) and they turned out great! I think I used Italian Seasoning and Paula's House Seasoning (I forgot to write it down, I just used what seemed good to me at the time). I used egg substitute instead of the real thing (trying to cut back), that could have been it, but it was still very good! The portion was huge, I cut it in half and that was plenty. Thanks Bobby, keep them comming!

Makes a great meal. The only adjustment I would make a second time around is just a little less salt and Dijon mustard, probably use half as much of both. The combination of both is very strong and almost overpowers the cheese.

This was a disaster. it was so dry and tasteless that no one wanted to eat it. it definitely needs more cheese and probably something to make it creamier. I guess there are some dishes that shouldn't be messed with. Should have made Paula's original recipe.

I made this with mini shells & the kids loved it - never knew it was low fat! Thanks Bobby!!! P.S. Need to mention size of casserole dish. Also, hard to determine post-cooking measurement of pasta when measuring the dry stuff (would be helpful if pasta boxes had this info!).
