    It was super gummy even before the cheese was added. Took more than 30 minutes of constant stirring. After serving it with my apology, I trashed it. Will try again but will cook my pasta separate and add some of the pasta water as a thickener. Hated wasting all of that time and cheese. Sorry only one star from my kitchen.

      This is a one-pot meal; the dry macaroni is cooked in the sauce (step 2).

    I found this to be quite gummy. The cooking time for the pasta is much longer than 6 minutes. I doubled it and it's still quite al dente. Also, you MUST cook this in a very large skillet. My stove is a mess from the milk and bechemel sauce spilling over even when I was being careful. Definitely a miss in my book - I'll be cooking mac 'n' cheese the old fashioned way.
