A mild, easy going Mac and Cheese :)

healthy and organic without worrying about calories.

I love Mac and Cheese and this is one great way to eat healthy and organic without worrying about calories. The only thing you need to be careful about is that the cheese powder should be mixed in milk instead of directly adding to the shells as it tends to stick to the pan which ruins the taste and the texture as it does not use butter and for this reason it is a healthier alternative. Prepare the mixture according to the given instructions for a great tasting meal.

- Irving Vega

Tastes great! Nice and creamy.

All Annie's products are excellent. Beats the other name brands for flavor. It's organic with no additives. Good item to keep on hand for a quick lunch.

- R. Meissner

Still happy many years later

This is the first Annie's product I ever tried, many moons ago, and I was hooked immediately. Organic, no artificial ingredients, and no antibiotics/hormones/pesticides - wonderful! A product and company after my own heart. I still make it regularly, since it's inexpensive, easy, and of course natural. Annie's rocks!
