    Very easy to make and enjoyed by the whole family...including the kids!  -  21 Jan 2013


    Not to my taste at all, far too rich. I expected the kids to like it though and was surprised that they didn't. Having read other posts I did stir part way through to avoid having uncooked pasta (which worked). I expected it to turn out more like a pasta bake but it was definitely more sloppy like macaroni cheese. I think this may be a bit of a Marmite recipe! Not for us.  -  07 Feb 2018


    why I expected anything using a can of condensed soup to be edible I don't know. I must have been drunk at the time. This dish is one of the less pleasant pasta dishes possible.  -  09 Dec 2013
