I guess in this recipe the important points are to use the two different types of shredded cheese, to use half & Half mixed with chicken broth & (if you wanted the tomato flavor) to al dente cook the pasta, then mix in the tomatoes & juice, then finish cooking it in the tomatoes & juice.
 
I imagine the rest is fudge-able.

Generally, I'm the same way - but this recipe had a number of unexpected ingredients...looks really good, if cooked right - looks like it could be really bad, if 'winging it'.
What I mean by that is just comparing my own 'winging' of another 'just-complicated-enough' recipe (a casserole, in this case) and getting it totally WRONG - had the kitchen smelling like 'cooked exterior house paint' (prolly 'white', possibly 'beige'). Did that many years ago - made the fam choke it down while telling them a story about all the lil'starving mongoliids in North Korea, who would gobble it in a 'Mississipppi Minute', if they wouldn't...
No.
This is ONE recipe I think I'd have to 'follow the book' by, at least for a 'base'.

I'm thinking I would try adding a 4oz can of diced chiles (drained) and substitue 1 cup of sour cream for 1 of the cups of half and half.

I still don't understand why I'm supposed to think a HAM radio operator is SO COOL that I would want to eat like him. Seriously, is this ad for like .0001% of the population?
It's ok, I'm in marketing!

Probably true.  I hear the best of their food described as fried "matter".

Whatever I used, I'd probably put less of it in.  I'd like the mac and cheese to be drier rather than wet.

I wish I could post the video segment so you could see the finished product as she spooned it out onto a couple of plates.

It was very thick & creamy.

Looked delicious.

What is so good about Velveeta shells and cheese, anyway? That's what I don't get!

It's not a very good commercial but it's still driving me crazy because the damn thing aired about a dozen times last night!
A new study finds that people who are chipper & happy live longer. Which is surprising because people who aren't chipper & happy want to kill people who are always chipper & happy. David Letterman
