One Pot Macaroni and Cheese
Servings: 4 servings
- 1 1/2 cups milk I used nonfat, but any will do
- 1/2 cup heavy cream
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 2 cups uncooked macaroni any small pasta will do
- 1 1/2 cups grated cheese I used 1/2 cup each of Cheddar, Gouda and Jack
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp salt
- fresh minced parsley
Add milk, cream, salt, dry mustard, pasta and butter into a medium sized pan. over medium heat.
Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently. Once at a simmer, turn heat down to low.
Cook and stir frequently for about 20 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add 1/4 cup more milk if pasta is not fully cooked and continue cooking until pasta is al dente.
Remove from heat and stir in cheeses. Cover and let stand for at least five minutes for the cheese sauce to set.
Serve immediately, garnished with fresh minced parsley if desired.
