one thing, for this recipe to make 12 servings with only 8 oz of pasta it is really just a side dish. 8 oz of cooked pasta only fills a large cereal bowl, then add the cheeses etc you have more but not 12 bowls full of mac and cheese

These were ok and I will make them again but not with a sweet cornbread mix. I used Trader Joe's that is more on the sweet side. I used Sweet Baby Ray's hickory and brown sugar BBQ sauce. I did use the pickles but don't see that they make much difference one way or the other. All in all an easy quick appetizer to make with a few adjustments to...

I served roasted chcken breast on the side and some people mixed it in with the pasta.. very good addition. Next time I may also add a little bit of toasted sesame oil to give it some extra flavor.

I brought this to a church picnic and it was a hit. To fill the trifle bowl I have and to make enough for a pot luck I had to double the recipe. I didn't have the Maria crackers so had to use the grahams and that was fine. I'll find the other crackers for next time I make it.

these tasted great and as another poster wrote, the recipe doesn't make anywhere near 18 crepes. I got 8 out of it, or I should say 7 and the first one which was a dud. Great with real maple syrup and butter if you don't want the chocolate. I used Trader Joe's Almond Cocoa spread with the bananas.. It was so good! Note to previous poster: please"

this is great to have on hand.. no more Bisquick. I don't refrigerate it because I don't refrigerate shortening. It should be fine stored as you would a box of Jiffy or Bisquick I would think. We make so many waffles it doesn't stick around very long anyway.
