    This was very nice a bit different to normal macaroni cheese. It is sweet because of sweet potato so make sure to season quite heavily - I needed more salt despite the cheese

    This was so good! As others have noted, a great combination of flavours here with the sweet potato, feta and sage. I added three hot Italian sausages, cut into chunks, prebroiled with the sausage juices, and also topped the casserole with rye breadcrumbs.

    We loved this, a really comforting meal perfect for this cold evening. I didn't have sage, so replaced it with thyme.

    I'll admit straight away that although I like it, I am not generally the biggest fan of macaroni and cheese as I generally find it to be too heavy. That said, I was intrigued enough to give this recipe a try for the interesting combination of sweet potatoes and feta cheese in the mix. Although this, like other mac and cheeses, was rather heavy and a big laggy, the contrast of the sharp feta to the sweet potatoes was very good and there was an overall more creaminess to the texture which I liked. I think it could have used a bit more English mustard or paprika (or a bit more of both) as it still felt a little lacking in taste, but still was quite enjoyable. It also made for a hefty amount of leftovers for lunch the next couple of days and was quite good eaten cold. I prepared this in one big baking dish and the timings were fine.

    Very tasty. The feta, mustard and sweet potatoes were welcome additions to the usual Mac and Cheese. Liked the presentation in individual dishes, which also baked more quickly.
