    This was horrible. I made it with almond milk and olive oil as another review mentioned I would never make this again.  -  29 Oct 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Will definitely make this again. Doesn't taste like the 'traditional' mac n cheese but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's still delicious and satisfying. Husband loved it!  -  17 Apr 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I made this for my son who cannot eat dairy. I used olive oil and unsweetened almond milk instead and it has an uncanny flavor to original mac and cheese! The rest of my family said that they preferred it over real mac and cheese, but I'm sure that they were just caught up in the moment.  -  23 Feb 2017  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
