Made this as a side dish for thanksgiving, really for the kids but all the adults loved it as well. In fact, this is the one side that everyone kept talking about the rest of the day. I tripled it and used 8 cups of noodles and an entire velveeta log, the 24 oz. I didn't use the flour and just added the milk until my desired creaminess. Only put in a 1/2 stick of butter even though I tripled the recipe. I just melted the cheese and butter in the micro and then poured over the noodles, then added milk- really simple and tasted great. Didn't use the shredded cheese or crackers on top, didn't need it. I added salt, pepper, and a little garlic as well.
