I made sorta your recipe yesterday but added 4 eggs to half a litre milk and grated nutmeg and Maggi boullion instead of the dijonaise and chicken soup. I also added diced pork sausage, because my three men are carnivores.

sounds good ! Thanks !

My son loves Mac & Cheese. I've never made it from scratch, and never thought about putting onions in it. I do add extra cheese and sometimes pour it into a baking pan, add fresh bread crumbs on top, dot with butter, and bake until browned. <br />
Thanks for sharing Peter. I'll try it :)

thanks ! it's delicious !

But my husband does the cooking..he's a bit particular. Sounds good to me though!

It's with boiled, sliced potatos, spinach cooked with chopped onions, garlic, grated nutmeg, diced sheep's cheese, milk and cream cheese.<br />

You know what? Yesterday I searched for a pasta bake recipe, but did it free style after I hadn't found what I searched for.<br />
<br />
My pasta bake was made from short macaroni, peas, smoked bacon, gouda cheese, scallions, cream cheese, milk, eggs.<br />
