One Pot Macaroni and Cheese

Probably my favorite comfort food of all time is Macaroni and Cheese. I remember being six or seven years old and spending the night at my grandma’s house, and every time she would pull the Stoffer’s Mac N Cheese out of the freezer and that’s what we ate. To this day that taste still reminds me of her.
Well now that I’m all grown up, my tastes have expanded, and I love to really dress up my mac and cheese. This recipe is great because you can easily adjust the amounts of milk/cream to make it healthier, or even use no cream at all (but why would you want to do that?). You can also experiment with different types of cheese. I made this one with Cheddar, Jack and Gouda (my new favorite!). Enjoy!

    Sounds great! I’m all for anything that doesn’t dirty every dish in the kitchen. When you are measuring the dry pasta and the cheese into cups, are you talking about packing it into measuring cups, or are you talking about ounces? My box of pasta is 16 oz. Is that the 2 cups, 8 oz being in a cup? Sorry, I’m confused!
