  1. I can eat all day this, this is really delicious but I want it sugar Free

  2. Just made this – omg, sooo gooood! Glad we made a double batch. We also added 1 small onion and 4 oz mushrooms, sauteed – plus 2 tablespoons of lite sour cream (those measurements for the double batch).

  3. Thank you for featuring a recipe with Greek Yogurt! Although I have to be careful with other dairy products because I am lactose-intolerant, Greek Yogurt seems to get along with me :). I can’t wait to try out this recipe!

  4. very lovely – many thanks

  5. Mac & cheese is my favorite comfort food – and spinach & artichoke dip is another top favorite. I can’t wait to try this!

    Love your site :}

  6. What is the serving size? Thanks!

  7. I love anything with spinach and artichokes. This looks fantastic!

  8. We tried this recipe for dinner tonight. My husband, who is a relatively picky eater, said, “This is a keeper. Put it in the file.” Two little sentences; incredibly high praise. We loved it! I’ll make this again and again. Thank you, Chungah!

  9. I am a major sucker for mac and cheese. I even devoted a whole week to it on my site! This recipe looks like a fantastic addition to my mac and cheese collection!

  10. Nice recipe, but I am not in the US (I am in Portugal), and I doubt I can get that Horizon Organic pasta.. can you give an alternative to those who can not get Mac and cheese so easy? Thanks!

  11. Sounds like a great way to gourmetize ( I made that word up, obviously-Ha) a good base
    for a quick meal. I have problems coming up with weekend lunches sometimes.
    Soup and sandwiches and more soup and sandwiches. I like this.

  12. I’ve been making a ton of mac n cheese lately using the mac sauce recipe from the Homeroom cookbook so I’m definitely going to adapt this. I love spin artichoke dip and this looks amazing.

  13. This looks so yummy! Can’t wait to try it!!

  14. As I love Spinach and Artichoke Dip, I know that this will be a winner in my house. Not only does this mac and cheese look hearty, it looks like a healthier option to some of the boxed mac and cheeses out nowadays.

  15. Hi, sounds yummy. Do I use the cheese packet from the box, or just the pasta? Thanks.

  16. A Mac’n’Ator – that is so clever 😀 And the combination you have used here sounds divine 😀 x
