Simple Mac and Cheese Recipe

Simple Mac and Cheese

A Satisfying Comfort Food

Life is hectic. I long for the days when the kids were little and didn’t have crazy schedules. Alas, those days are gone. Now, I have to contend with dance classes and various doctors’ appointments. Oh, and add to that all of their social engagements. Yesterday was one of those days. Crazy, crazy, crazy! So, when it came time for dinner, I had two options: take-out or make it simple.

As always, I chose the make it myself simple route. I hate paying a small fortune for food that I could easily make myself. Since time was short, I decided on a Simple Mac and Cheese dish. Shells and cheese actually, but let’s not split hairs.

For those busy nights, I also like to keep bags of frozen veggies in the freezer. You know, the ones that you can microwave right in the bag. If you want to add some meat to it, you can throw in some cooked bacon (and jalapenos) or some already grilled chicken. I believe you can find that in the produce section of most supermarkets.

Gather all of your ingredients. I like to have mine measured out and ready since we’re making a roux and things happen so quick. Once you have boiled your pasta, drain it in a colander and set aside. Use the same pot you used to boil the pasta, to make the sauce. (One pot, less cleaning!)

Get your pot nice and hot, and then add the butter. Once it is melted, add the flour and whisk, whisk, whisk! Once the butter and flour are completely combined, add milk and whisk until thickened.

I was recently teaching my daughter how to make a roux. She complained that it wasn’t getting thick. I told her that that is how it works. It’s thin, it’s thin, and then bam! Thick!

Now that your sauce has reached the desired thickness, add the cheese. For my mac and cheese, I add: cheddar, mozzarella, and a wild card. It really depends on what I feel like that day or what I have on hand. Stir until completely melted.

When your cheesy sauce is ready, add the pasta back into the pot and stir. I keep my heat on low during this step to make sure everything gets warmed back up.

Serve and Enjoy!

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz pasta (macaroni, shells, penne…whatever)
  • 6 tbps flour6 tbsp butter (not margarine)
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3 cups of cheese (you can use 3 cups of the same or mix it up and use three different)
  • Salt and pepper to taste.

How to:

  1. Cook Pasta according to the instructions on the box. Drain and set aside.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter. Once melted, add flour and whisk until completely combined.
  3. Add milk and whisk until it reaches desired thickness.
  4. Add cheese to pot and stir until melted.
  5. Add pasta to pot and stir until combined.
  6. Serve hot and enjoy.
