This is absolutely correct. Most people do not make it as a pasta - they make it as a casserole with some noodles as garnish. And I agree - it's not offensive or anything (although my mom used to make hers by not cooking the non-precooked noodles, and it traumatized me for life as a child). But it's just not spectacular.I think most people don’t use enough noodles. It starts to taste like you are eating spaghetti sauce with meat and a random noodle mixed in. Noodle heavier and blend different cheeses with it and it will be better, and I don’t think mine is the best. I think it’s like a middle of the road food. Don’t love it but don’t hate. I won’t order it at a restaurant.
Yeah, and some places do weird stuff with it. Like - I love me some pepperjack cheese, but rarely is it good in macaroni. It just tastes of "trying too hard."I’m fully onboard with your Mac and cheese take. It’s all the same and almost never that memorable. Mac and cheese is for 5 year olds.
