For this recipe i doubled it so my whole family and friends that were over could eat it as well as people take it for lunches. The process was longer then the recipe says because it took longer for the water to boil for the noodles. I also added like 2-3 more tablespoons of flour because the rue wasnt at the right constancy. In the end we could have added more cheese to it or added even bacon in it. we made bacon for the side though. Everyone enjoyed the dish. The only thing i would do different is either add more flavor or add more types of cheeses.
