    I was so looking forward to ****** it as the pic. looked awesome. First, it looks yellow in the pic, it is white. Second, it is sooooooo bland. Made it as recipe indicated only substitution was elbow pasta for scoobi doo. You would think grilled green onions and bacon would enhance the dish, however the cheese lacks any punch. Expensive cheese too, what a waste.
