I used the recipe off of the Kraft Deluxe Macaroni & Cheese, which is basically the same except it takes a little more milk and water, plus I only used broccoli (3 cups). I was a bit iffy about mixing the mac & cheese with other things, but I was wrong - this was excellent! It was pretty easy, and tasted great, plus it was very filling. It also made a lot - we had plenty of leftovers after my husband and I ate. He isn't a huge fan of broccoli, but he actually enjoyed this too. This would be great for feeding a family with kids.
