Macaroni and Cheese


Mac and Cheese seemed like a great option for dinner tonight, although i didn’t want to make it from a box sooooooooo i made a homemade one. it was totally thrown together with what i had on hand. I didn’t measure so measurements are only guesses, but as always adjust the recipe to your taste.

1/2 a box of small shell pasta

1 teaspoon of butter

3oz of milk

1/4 cup of cheddar cheese cut up into pieces

2 slices of Velveeta cheese

A few sprinklers of parmesan cheese

Onion powder, garlic powder, salt and pepper to your taste

1 tablespoon of breadcrumbs

Preheat the oven to 450 degrees. Cook pasta as directed on box.  Meanwhile cut up cheddar cheese and gather other ingredients. Drain pasta and return to pan and place on stove. Keep the burner on the lowest setting. Add in all ingredients to pasta EXCEPT for the breadcrumbs. Put a cover over the saucepan to help the cheese melt. Once the cheese is melted, stir and add a little more milk if needed.  Grease a 9×9 baking dish (or whatever size you would like)* and pour the macaroni mixture into pan. Sprinkle with more parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs. Bake in oven for 10-15 minutes until the top is crunchy, slight brown and the edges bubbling (watch to make sure it doesn’t burn).  I served over some cut up cooked shrimp.

*might be tasty in small individual dishes
