Rated 4 out of 5 by from I made this tonight and my husband and I liked it! I made this tonight and my husband and I liked it! It was easy to make and I really enjoyed the addition of artichokes to the mac and cheese! I made a few substitutes using lite cheddar, lite philly veggie cream cheese, and 2% milk just to make it healthier.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from I made this Christmas night. I made this Christmas night. I love all of the ingredients, but when it was done, it just tasted bland. Likely will not make this again.
