      Dear Susan,

      Thank you for trying this recipe and I'm aware of the problem you are stating. When the dish get cold the sauce thickens and sticks to the macaroni. To get the same texture as it was right after you cooked it, you can add some amount of milk to the dish. mix it properly and heat it for about 2 minutes. It'll taste the same even after several hours.

      I hope you issue is solved now :)

      Tried your recipe but after a few hours the sauce dried up and it wasn't the same as compared to when it was cooked and eaten immediately.

      Yes Marcus you can definitely add cheese. You can incorporate cheese in two ways:

      1. You can add the cheese in the sauce

      2. You can add grated cheese on the top of macaroni and bake it for 10 minutes.

      Thank you
