Ingredients
  • 16 ounces rotini pasta ( or any similar size pasta you prefer)
  • 16 ounces shredded cheddar cheese (mild, sharp, or Monterrey jack)
  • 3 tablespoons milk
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
Directions
PREP
10 mins
COOK
10 mins
  • Boil the water. When it has reached a boil, empty the package of pasta into the water and let boil for 8 - 10 minutes.
  • While you are waiting, place the shredded cheese (I usually grate the cheese while the water boils), milk, & butter at the bottom of a large bowl.
  • When the pasta is ready, drain and immediately transfer it to the large bowl. While you let the pasta sit and melt all the ingredients at the bottom, add the salt and pepper.
  • Mix everything together until it is completely incorporated. Your macaroni and cheese may be gooey, stringy, or completely smooth - nonetheless, it's fantastic and easy for you and your kids.

"I didn't know what to think of this mac & cheese at first because the cheese didn't melt the best when I just put the hot pasta on it. But I put it in the microwave just enough to melt all the cheese and we thought it was great. Loved the texture of the cheese and pasta together. When I make this the next time I will probably just use a little less pasta or a little more cheese."
