1 can cheddar cheese soup
1/2 can water
1/2 can milk
Bring to a boil stirring now and then. When boiling add 1 cup (I prefer 1 1/2 cups) uncooked noodles to the boiling pot. Let cook until noodles are done. Be sure to stir occasionally so it doesn't burn on the bottom. My teenagers like this better than the box kind. I also add a touch of butter at the end.

Old recipe from Tennessee. 1lb bag of macaroni, 1/2 box Velveeta cubed. Boil noodles tis tender, drain most of the water, but leave at least 1/4 of the water. Add the cubed Velvetta stir until melted. Creamy, smooth, and easy!

The very best is by Food Network's Alton Brown. Easy, too.

My Fav Mac 'N Cheese

1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
1 lb small curd cottage cheese
8 ounces sharp Cheddar cheese, grated
4 tbs margarine
1/4 cup milk


salt and pepper to taste

Put on a large pot of water to boil. Salt heavily. When it comes to a boil, add macaroni and cook al dente.
Meanwhile in a heavy 2 quart pot, combine cottage cheese, Cheddar cheese, margarine, milk and salt and pepper. Over med-low heat, bring to a boil, stirring occasionally, until Cheddar is melted.

Drain macaroni and combine in a greased 2-qt casserole. Top with buttered bread crumbs and bake for 20 minutes.

No, this isn't strictly stove top. If you lack an oven, pop it in the microwave for 5-10 minutes.

Mac and cheese can be overwhelming in large portions so here is my take on a simple light mac and cheese. To complete this meal, I heated up frozen natural chicken strips and turkey bacon.
