Hi.

This recipe looks really great but I'm wondering is the serving size of 15 is a typo.

Thanks.

No, that's correct.... 3 across and 5 down. I've since found, however, that my husband can eat about 4 servings in one sitting --then go back for seconds. I pair it with a salad and a roll and I'm fine with one serving.

Hi, this sounds really good, I love stuff like this. I wonder if I used skim milk and lower fat shredded cheese.. how much of a difference that would make.. maybe I could eat more of it :)

Thanks :)

btw, if I decide to make it anytime soon, I will count it up and let ya know :)

ok, I hope you don't mind.. I modified it a little, and I changed mushrooms to green beans for my own purpose, cause I don't like mushrooms.. :lol:

Y'know... when I'm starving, I can put away quite a bit of food myself. My husband hates mushrooms too :D

It is my own thing that I won't use lowfat or nonfat cheese. If it was like milk, that would be great. But everytime I pick up a pack of lower fat cheese, and there are all of these gazillions of ingredients you can't pronounce.

Thanks very much for providing a variation! My husband would probably like it more than mine. I just had the "Smart Ones" Mac & Cheese yesterday for lunch and was just revolted by it. It was runny and flavorless, and I'm a serious cheese eater. :D
