Friday I was bored at home and thinking about what to make for dinner that was easy and cheesy. I wanted to make something I have never done before and then it hit me… why not make mac n cheese!? So I did, and it turned out really good. It was simple and quick and better than the boxed Kraft mac n cheese you can buy at the store. Not to mention its always fun to make your own food!
I got this recipe off all recipes. All you need is :
8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 tablespoons butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
2 cups milk
1 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
8 ounces cubed processed cheese food
Then what you do is
In a large pot with boiling salted water cook elbow macaroni until al dente. Drain.
In a medium saucepan, over medium heat melt butter or margarine. Whisk flour and stir vigorously. Add milk and cook until thick and bubbly, about 5 to 7 minutes. Add cheeses and stir until completely melted.
In a large bowl mix together the drained pasta and cheese sauce mixture. Toss to coat evenly.
Pour into a greased 2 quart casserole dish. Bake in a preheated 350 degree F (175 degrees C) oven for 30 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes before serving.
It only takes 45 minutes to cook this and about an hour to make it. I seriously recommend you try this recipe out! Everyone that has made it said it was great and they have made it repeated times. I know I will make it more than once. I added a little parmesan cheese to the top of mine, but that is only because I am OBSESSED with cheese, and I also put some tobacco on it. 😉 I mean my family loved it and asked me how I did it and its this simple! So try it out and let me know what you think. Hope your weekend was great and better than mine!
