Reviews For Organic Grass Fed Shells & Real Aged Cheddar

Based on 8 Reviews

Sorry Annie

This just wasn't good. The pasta was gritty and it had no flavor at all. My daughter wouldn't eat it.

- Kyle

Perfect Quick Side

When I was a kid, salmon patties and shell macaroni and cheese was a staple. I recently started making it from scratch, but this is the perfect option for a quick meal on those night that "from scratch" just ain't happenin'. The cheese sauce is not quite as thick I'm used to with shell pasta, but it didn't bother me at all, and I loved the flavor! This is going to be a repeat at our house for sure.

- Daffny

Amazing!

This is so much better than any other box macaroni and cheese--others don't even compare to this one!

- Arielle
