Quick and easy, nice with bacon bits too
Made this last night really nice I will be making again but will use more cheese and some onions.
Instead of using cheese I used a packet of Maggi cheese sauce really tasty.
Have made this twice. Second time perfect. Added bacon and mushroom. As easy as it is good.
thanks for the new recipe! it seems to be delicious!
very tasty when tomatoes and diced bacon were added another great touch is diced onion
I actually made this last night...Wonderful....I will not be making my own sauce again.
I added ham pieces and rinsed the sauce jar out with 1 cup of milk
Makes a nice easy Mac Cheese. I like to stir cheese through the sauce as well and even a pinch of mustard powder
Easy simple & YUMMY!!!
FAMILY FAVOURITE :)
Easy to make and soooooo tasty. Definitely will be using this sauce again and the recipe.
Certainly cant beat a classic Mac Cheese. This sauce has made a simple quick meal even easier to make.
mac n cheese is always a family favourite. This sounds quick easy to make and delicious. Something the older kids could help make too. Big thumbs up
Best Mac n cheese recipe, it is really simple, I love to add caramelised onions and bacon bits and roasted chicken. Great for a warming winters night dinner, also great for lunch leftovers for the week.
looks so yummy
Loved it +++
Really Tasty. Absolutely Delicious. I would recommend it.
My young children love mac and cheese. I add mixed veges and ham for a easy dinner that is sure to be eaten
So easy and quick. Tasty - yum!!
Seriously? Boil pasta , pour over sauce and throw it in the oven is a recipe?
Easy to make and just right for kids who don't like any extras in their mac n cheese
I highly recommend adding a tin of tuna, a tin of sweetcorn and some chopped spring onions for a speedy but delicious dinner.
Easy family meal its delicious
Love this was so yummy.
When time is limited but you want a wholesome and delicious Mac & Cheese this Classic recipe for the family is a winner and all within an hour you'll be enjoying.
Now this is even more of a favourite with the NEW sauce added, Yummmmmmmmmm
Simply and tasty lunch, we add bacon and tomatoes. Yum !!
It's nice and easy to do for a quick meal when had a hard day at work.
Absolutely delicious and so easy too. I love that I don't have to make the cheese sauce any more :)
Geart and easy recipe
I rate this a 4-star recipe for its' 'quick'n'easy' approach to a family favourite. I do think it might benefit from a little 'tarting up' with a few rashers of chopped bacon - Or, perhaps a layer of luscious tomatoes - Or, even just a sprinkle of paprika and/or chilli flakes.
But really, because it is a Classic - and the ingredients are familiar in a comforting way - It's great just as it is!
A nice easy and basic family meal.
This is so quick and easy and so yummy with bacon bits in it the kids love it
Quick and easy and a great "go to" recipe when in a hurry or have unexpected guests
This was so quick and easy to make for lunch .For Dinner I would use the other recipe
Anything that means I don't have to make my own cheese sauce for Macaroni Cheese rates very highly. The Heinz sauce is on my shopping list already.
The grand children love it..... and it was sooo very easy
Simple and easy cheese and mac. Instead of cheese I added a breadcrumb mix of breadcrumbs, parsley and parmesan. Delish!
My children love mac Cheese
We tried the Heinz Seriously Good Tasty Cheddar Macaroni Cheese for dinner tonight and it was a big hit with the kids (with I thought it would be). I stuck with the classic recipe and added cooked bacon to it and it was very tasty. I think next time I might add mushrooms, cherry tomatoes and paprika, although the kids probably wouldn't be as keen. Might have to make a kids classic version and an adults version to keep everyone happy.
so easy to make and everyone loved it ( a good and quick easy meal to make) is now a weekly meal
really quick and easy
Did not taste like it came out of a jar at all! Soooo good
Really tasty and a good warming dish for winter.
The staple recipe in my pantry - love Mac'n'Cheese. So simple to make and just so tasty. I always add extra cheese as just got to have that cheesy goodness :)
Loved this, so much easier and quicker than the Edmonds Cookbook recipe and tasted as good. We thought it would last us 2 nights but we both went back for seconds and cleaned it up. I just pan fried a couple of diced streaky bacon strips and a small onion and added it to the mix before the cheese topping.
Have loved Mac n Cheese since I was a child. This one is classic and wonderful.
Wonderfully quick and easy when I'm in a rush, usually use it as a side dish with onion and mushroom thrown in
Quick and easy to follow and great Sunday Brunch
Easy meal for family and flatmates.
Really good with bacon bits
Super quick and and easy and very tasty. Everyone loves a good macaroni cheese and this is the best with little preparation. Yummy

This recipe saves me so much time especially with a chaotic household we need something quick and easy not to mention tasty
Easy to make and loved by everyone. I have also added both bacon and mushrooms to make it extra special.
Reviewing on behalf of my children, they very much like this recipe. My fussy eater son enjoys this one so will be a regular on our family menu :)

Great quick recipe to cook after long day that family love. Can add in some bacon &/or onions to Jazz it up a bit.

My grandson's favourite dinner!
Macaroni cheese is always a favorite in our house hold so easy to make you can add other ingredients to it like ham pieces , onions , sage bread crumbs just awesome
This recipe is easy to make and has plenty of cheese in it.
This is the easiest and tastiest Mac cheese ever. We added bacon to the mixture and panko crumbs in with cheese for an extra crunch in the topping. Kids and adults alike loved it.
I made this in bulk for a wedding, at the request of the groom. I added bacon and onion but gave the tomato a miss. It was ultra quick and easy to prepare, it was delicious and went down a treat...not a bite was left.....a great dish for kids to cook too
Easy meal for when in a rush. However would prefer the ultimate
Mac and cheese is one of my favorite home comfort meals. Love my mothers but don't live at home anymore i miss it. Was pretty happy when i found out Heinz was releasing a Mac and cheese sauce as i love their products. Was simple and quick to make and added bacon and breadcrumbs on top. The verdict.....delicious! Super smooth and creamy without being too bulky and tastes just as good reheated the next day And uh possibly better than my mothers (hopefully she never reads this). Will be buying this from now on!
So easy and a family favourite. I added some bacon too. Yum!
I made it following the recipe and found it to be very bland, so tried it a second time this time adding some onions, vege stock, bacon and more tasty cheese, this made it much more tasty
good, basic comfort food, made easy
Quick, tasty and easy. Saves time so you can relax and enjoy this dish even more
I make this once a week every week for my family.
Great,yummy and so easy to put together for a friday night feast,enjoyed by everyone.
Easy meal. I added some chopped tomato, onion & bacon for a bit more flavor.
It was quick and easy to make and absolutely delicious
Super easy to create, quick and easy week night meal - perfect with the bacon!
Delicious hearty winter warmer meal #delicious #macncheeseisthebest #heinzmakesmecookbetter
Monday night dinner .. our favourite .
A modern way of serving up a much-loved "comfort food" meal. Delicious. Many ideas to add other ingredients too. A versatile dish. Love it.
Very very nice but to my taste a stronger cheese taste in sauce be good , cut up 250 or 500 gm of bacon and add strong tasty Gouda cheese on top of the breadcrumbs
for years i wasnt a fan of Mac Cheese now using either Heinz Seriously Good Mac Cheese Pasta Bake or Heinz Seriously Good Tasty Cheddar Macaroni Cheese Saucea dding some Bacon and Peas to the Pasta topping with some Sliced Tomato Extra Grated Cheese and some Fresh Breadcrumbs and i im a very happy camper ...... and making it always feels like its a Meal [ made ] in a Minute
Easy to follow recipe. Big crowd pleaser in our household. Very hard to pick out and find a decent mac n cheese recipe that has brands in a kiwi supermarket, so this recipe was a life saver.
Super easy and just so yummy!
Great to add to, or to keep simple, depending on how fussy the eaters are!
I love it! Quick and simple,no mucking around making your own cheese sauce,add some bacon bits foe extra yum.
Loved by the whole family
The sauce tastes great, a lot easier than making a home-made one! adding bacon and breadcrumbs is a must!
Very delicious a lot more flavoursom then my recipe I will be using your recipe now
This was such an easy midweek meal. No fuss at all, enjoyed by everyone.
Was very easy to make and my son loved it. I added cooked bacon and onion with some watties mixed veges to get his 5 plus. Taste was different to my normal home made always will be.
Quick and easy. Also a good base if you feel like making it "gourmet" by adding other ingredients
My grandson asks for macaroni cheese almost as soon as he comes through the door. Usually it's the instant stuff. But I tried the Heinz sauce and what a success. Even my husband loved it what a miracle. It was nice and creamy. I froze left overs till he comes again!
Seriously it couldn't be easy! 3 ingredients. Roughly 40 mins and ya done. A 'meat-free Monday' winner, especially with the addition of tomatoes! Yum-my :)
Our family tried this first before we made the classic mac cheese and the whole family gave it the thumbs up. They all without exception thought it was much nice than the boring one I used to make. The kids all found it very easy to make and want it as a weekly meal. They all loved adding their own spin with veges on it so a big win win for me
This would be a great tasty meal and has the advantage over Ultimate version for us as we are basically vegetarian.
For a diabetic in our family I would treat it as a very special meal, as Pasta generally can so easily rocket the blood sugar readings.
Thank you for this recipe, hope all goes well for both versions.
I need to omit the tomato but it's still good
Great Recipe, easy to make
Very easy on a busy night !!

Easy scrumptious meal, so quick and yummy. Everyone loves it.

Easy to prepare for a hungry family anytime as an extra course or fill in between meals. Ideal for those cooler days or when extra guests arrive unexpectedly
Soo easy & soooo tasty
Best macaroni cheese ever! Had to go buy some more because it's such a cheap, easy meal, who could resist??
Yum.. nice and easy recipe.. will be making that over the weekend..
Simple, quick and easy. Stir in any leftover meat or veges to give it a bit more interest.
i add 1 teaspoon of mustard powder to the sauce yummmmm

Real easy to create for busy family and tasty
Easy to make instructions were easy to follow and everyone enjoyed, I am not normally a big fan of Mac Cheese but will admit I added some leftover cooked meat chopped up with a sprinkle of curry powder and garlic salt

Awesome recipe :) the flatmates really enjoyed it!!!
Your sauce makes it soooo easy! Dad loves 3 or 4 ingredient meals too! So simple :)

Super nice with chorizo, ham and mushrooms. Sprinkle extra cheese and breadcrumbs on top for crunchy topping!!!
Really easy to make! We tried adding the diced bacon as we had some. It came out of the oven looking really appetising with the golden cheese melted on top. It tasted as good as it looked, and we will certaily be trying it again!
Simply, easy and quick! Children and Adults alike love it!
Top notch recipe this is for ya classic Mac n cheese!
Easy to make. Felt that it would have had more flavour with the addition of bacon, tomato etc as per the suggestions.
Great quick mid week meal. Better with nice smoky bacon bits added.

Nice quick meal when you have had a busy day with grand kids and you come back with hungry tired little people.
Hadn't made Macaroni Cheese for ages - saw this recipe and decided to try it. So yummy! Had 2 of these in a week (a few days apart!) and will buy another jar of the lovely sauce this week. Have to have it in stock!
So quick and easy. The second time I made it I added bacon, a dash of smoked paprika and sprinkled Parmesan cheese on top. Very tasty and the leftovers heated up the next day even better!
Loved the classic Mac, so easy and quick. Involved our grand son and he said is is now a really good cook.... Parmesan and panko crumbs added a really nice crunchier top. Many thanks
Nice and easy to make very yummy well worth having in the pantry for a quick meal
Wow. This is quick and easy and a hit with the kids. Pasta and Cheese = winning!!
I love Mac 'n Cheese! A childhood favourite.
This really is the perfect week night meal - so quick, easy, no fuss. I keep a jar of Heinz Seriously Good Mac Cheese Pasta Bake in the cupboard as a backup, but this recipe (with added onions and garlic) more often than not becomes a go-to!
Love this easy to make recipe and often add a splash of worcestershire sauce to the mix.
Kids loved and so did we. Great easy meal
We will definitely make this again!! A winner with all 3 kids
This is fab and easy, you can add extras if you want to such as mushrooms and cheese and bacon or just leave original. Great either way.
I made this with bacon added and it was a real hit with the family. So quick to prepare and cook. Ideal for a busy night.
Great for a super-quick evening meal, nice with a few herbs added e.g. sage, chives.
Thanks for sending me the taster pack. made it today. I made the Classic Mac Cheese - very easy to make, tasted good but next time I would add some bacon and onion to make it even more tastier.
This particular recipe puts the capital "C" in classic. It's cheese sauce and pasta, baked in a casserole dish until golden-topped and bubbly. Remarkably, it doesn't take all that much more time and effort than opening a box of the pre-made stuff.
Was so good! Everyone loved it so cheap and easy
So quick and easy without too many dishes, tastes great and like the extra tips suggested
Quick and easy nice and creamy
both me and my father loved it but we thought it would be nice to think about making another sauce with maybe a hint of bacon flavour or bits
Just delicious and SO easy and quick with the sauce out of the jar. The bacon bits take it to another level and great for using up leftover vege from the fridge.
Easy, delicious and tasty!! So quick to whip up
Quick and easy meal, kids thought it was yum. For the adults added some smoky bacon bits which improved the flavor.
Macca Cheese is always our standby quick meal for those cold winter weekend night meals - with Heinz Seriously Good Tasty Cheddar Macaroni Cheese Sauce it is so much quicker and easier! We always have a jar or three of it in our pantry.
So quick and easy tasted great to
Made some tonight. Added some mixed vegetables & tomato. Husband & children thought it was yummy, & wanted more, but it was all finished.
Very tasty and easy to cook. Added ham and tomato for something a bit different.
Good comfort food and easy and quick. Would like with the bacon
Very quick and easy, the kids enjoyed it. A few bacon bits, onion and sundried tomatos would make it even better.
Delicious and easy to make. I added bacon, parsley and fresh chilli.
