Say goodbye to boxed mac ‘n cheese or any other recipe you’ve tried before! This isn’t only the best mac ‘n cheese out there, but it’s also quick to make and requires only one pot. Feel free to serve with a protein such as fish and a salad, but let’s be honest, no one will touch those when this dish is at the table!
Place the pasta, water, milk, butter, salt, and mustard into a large pot. Cover the pot and bring to a boil on high heat.
Uncover, lower to a simmer and mix.
Cover the pot and continue cooking for 10 minutes.
Uncover and mix again. If the noodles aren’t soft to your liking, cover the pot and allow to cook till noodles are softer, just a few minutes.
Once noodles are soft enough, turn off the flame.
Mix in the cream cheese and cheddar cheese.
Cover once more and let sit to melt for a few minutes.
Uncover and mix again.
Pasta is best enjoyed fresh. Reheat in the microwave, or if reheating on the stove add half a cup of milk or water and reheat on medium heat.
Creamy and smooth but quite plain tasting. On the other hand it’s not heavy or too rich. Thank you!
This was so simple to make but tested absolutely fabulous! Subbed mozzarella instead of cheddar and came out fine
