I am pretty sure this is my mom’s recipe. Well I know it came from her anyway. This is the easiest recipe. Three ingredients is all it takes and yet you can do so much with it just by changing the cheese or pasta or adding more stuff!
Delicious and Simple Mac and Cheese
- 1 cup uncooked macaroni
- 1 cup milk
- 6 o.z. cheese
Cook the macaroni according to package directions; I always go with the 7 minute time ~ it may not be quite done but will finish cooking when baking. Drain pasta ~ do not rinse; pour into buttered casserole. Add milk and 4 o.z. cheese; sprinkle with salt and pepper if desired and stir gently. Top with remaining cheese and bake at 375 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
Use your favorite cheese or experiment with new ones. I always use my favorite extra sharp cheddar. Today I used Gruyère too. I’ve found using at least 2 kinds of cheese works best but if you only use one just make sure it’s the one you really like. I really like the way this comes together it’s not a velvety creamy mac and cheese like you get with a sauce but it’s oh so delicious. Enjoy ~ Kimberly
