Macaroni and Cheese.. Everyone buys the box right? Easy Mac.. I do it, too sometimes! Unfortunately, although delicious.. They contain SO MUCH sodium and added preservatives!
Making your own mac and cheese is A L O T easier than you may think..
Casey’s Easy Mac and Cheese –
✨1/2 lb of elbow macaroni (half a box)
✨2 tablespoons of butter
✨2 tablespoons of flour
✨2 cloves of garlic, minced (optional)
✨1 cup of milk
✨2 cups of shredded cheese (I do 1 cup Monterey Jack and one cup of sharp cheddar)
✨salt and pepper to taste
1. Make your pasta, drain and set aside.
2. In a large pot melt your butter, once melted mix in garlic and flour until thick.
3. Pour in your milk and whisk until it thickens. Add in the cheese and stir until smooth.
4. Toss your noodles back in and stir to combine! Salt and pepper to taste..
Just like that, you have a luscious amazing mac and cheese, with no fillers or preservatives.. and you control the salt! Can’t beat that!
Make a meal out of it and throw some diced vegetables and/or meat in there too! 😉
*Also, If you wanted to make this a baked mac and cheese just mix together:
1/3 cup of grated Parmesan
1/3 cup of breadcrumbs
1/3 cup of cornmeal
1 tablespoon of melted butter
Put your Mac and cheese into an oven safe pan, smooth it out into an even layer. Sprinkle the mixture over the top and bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes! 🙂
