Oh my! Very good if you're into creamy and decadent. For the Italian seasonings it can be a blend of any of these: basil, oregano, rosemary, and ground red pepper.

Ingredients:

  • 16 oz. pasta shells or elbow macaroni
  • 1 Tbsp. butter
  • 2 (5 oz.) cans evaporated fat-free milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • Ad

  • 3/4 tsp. salt
  • 1/2 tsp. dried Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1 tsp. ground nutmeg
  • 12 oz. sharp Cheddar cheese, shredded, ~ 3 cups divided

Directions:

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain and return to pot. Stir in butter; cover and set aside.

Position broiler rack so that top of macaroni and cheese in baking dish will be 4 to 6 inches from heat source; preheat broiler.

While pasta is cooking whisk together milk, eggs, Worcestershire, salt, seasoning, pepper, and nutmeg until combined.

Place pot of drained cooked pasta over low heat; stir in milk mixture and 2 cups shredded cheese. Cook, stirring, until creamy sauce forms and mixture is hot, about 5 minutes.

Transfer mixture to ungreased 6-cup baking dish; sprinkle with remaining cheese. Broil until lightly browned and bubbly, 2 to 3 minutes.

No need to precook the pasta. Everything is mixed together and popped into the oven.

Simply had to spice up this traditionally boring recipe a little bit and I also love it baked with the bread crumb topping rather than serving directly out of the saucepan.

Turn a regular box macaroni into a feast! Cook one or two boxes of Kraft macaroni or store brand macaroni and cheese. Add one to two cans of water packed tuna, drained, and 1/2 to one cup of frozen mixed veggies (thawed of course).

Healthy macaroni and cheese that is creamy and healthy. I wanted to get some vegetables nutrients in my son's diet and cook vegetables in new ways to give him more options to eat them.

Ingredients:

Directions:

Cook noodles and vegetables together in pot of boiling salted water until pasta is al dente and vegetables tender. (If you are cooking firmer vegetables, be sure to add them to the water first so the pasta doesn't get mushy). Drain pasta and veggies, leave in strainer.

In a hot pot, melt butter/butter substitute. When melted add flour and mix well. Let cook about 1 minute so that the flour taste cooks away, stirring frequently. Add milk and stir until it starts to thicken. Add cheese 1 oz. at a time. Salt and pepper to taste, when sauce is smooth and creamy stir noodles and vegetables back in.

Even if your kids won't eat the vegetables, the noodles will have absorbed some of the nutrients from being cooked with them and the sauce is tasty so your kids might not even notice the vegetables! My 3 year old ate carrots the other day in this mac and cheese. No go for the broccoli though!

Servings: 4-6
Time:10 Minutes Preparation Time
7-10 Minutes Cooking Time

Kraft Dinner came to Americans and Canadians during World War ll in 1937, marketed as a meal for four at .19 cents a box. Today, a box of macaroni and cheese can be purchased for between .50 cents and $2.00 depending on the brand. Here is a tip when cooking the old favorite.

When I boil the noodles, I throw in some chopped carrots and broccoli to give it extra nutrition for my son. You could even mix in some chopped bacon to give it extra flavor. Kids who love mac and cheese will eat the veggies if they are chopped small.

I really want to make macaroni and cheese, but all the recipes I find on YouTube or google include milk or condensed milk. Unfortunately I am not allowed to put any milk product (except for cheese, obviously) into macaroni and cheese. Can you suggest some recipes of macaroni and cheese that do not include milk? Thx

I have 2 easy stovetop mac & cheese recipes. The first one is from the Velveeta cheese box -
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni
3/4 lb (12 oz) Velveeta Pasteurized Prepared Cheese Product, cut into 1/2 inch cubes
1/3 cup milk
1/8 tsp pepper

1. Cook macaroni in large saucepan as directed on package, drain well. Return to pan.
2. Add in remaining ingredients; cook on low heat until Velveeta is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently.

Makes 4 servings, 1 cup each.
Prep time: 5 minutes
Total time: 20 minutes

The second recipe came from Campbell's Soup, I think.

1 can cheddar cheese soup
1/2 soup can milk
1/2 soup can water
1 cup uncooked elbow pasta

Mix soup, milk and water in saucepan. Stir in pasta. Cook over low heat until pasta is done, stirring often.

Serves 4
