Dry Macaroni & Cheese

I wasn't paying attention to dinner last night and my normally great macaroni and cheese turned out extremely DRY . Any ideas to help the second dish when I take it out of the freezer? Did not want to go the tuna route unless someone has a really unique recipe. Thanks so much.

Make a little more cheese sauce and add it before reheating.

It must be something in the air, I did the same thing last week. I added some sour cream to the leftovers, and it helped a bit.
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

Add a little milk when re-heating.

I'll second that to a little milk.

Drat - I missed seconds .... hope there is enough for thirds!

Yeah - agree with the "a little milk" idea.
