I didn't follow the recipe completely. I made the low fat version of regular Mac & Cheese. Also, I didn't have the broccoli, but put in a cooked/frozen Green Giant Broccoli & cheese pack. My husband normally does not like skilletsor left-overs; however, the taste was so outstanding he recommended I put it on our fall menus and he even ate the left-overs for lunch the next day! This is especially great when we're trying to watch our pennies! Not only does it taste good, but it's not too heavy on our wallets!
