      Great basic recipe to get a creamy mac and cheese! For an extra "wow" factor, I'd do the following modifications:

      - Cook the macaroni till it's mostly done, but still a little firm ("al dente")

      - Instead of pouring the macaroni into the half/half mixture, pour it into a separate bowl and mix in half a stick of butter and a couple eggs till the pasta is coated throughout

      - Pour the heated half/half and cheese mixture over the pasta and mix thorougly

      - Pour into the buttered casserole dish and bake

      My boyfriend and I both loved this dish! We each had seconds! I used about 8 ounces of bow-tie pasta and boiled my pasta until still firm to the bite. This is a definite keeper and I'm making this again soon!

      This was very easy and delicious! I thought the texture was a little grainy but the flavor totally made up for it. I used fat free half-and-half. I also cooked the pasta a little past half (6 min) as I was afraid of it not getting done with the small amount of additional cook time; the pasta ended up perfectly cooked. Thanks for the recipe!
