Everyday mac n cheese.

Everyone needs a good mac n cheese recipe go-to.  This is mine.  I have others that I pull out for holidays--ones with crunchy toppings, fancier cheese blends, a little paprika, the whole shebang.  But this one is super simple, yet creamy and absolutely delicious.  And because it's a one dish wonder (unlike most recipes, you do not have to pre-boil the noodles!), it's perfect for everyday meals.

When I say it's a standby, I mean it--last fall and winter, I made it weekly!  And I've passed it around to so many playdate friends that we often get to enjoy it at their homes, too.

Everyday Mac N Cheese

adapted from Family Circle Magazine, March 2007


Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

In a baking dish (I use a pyrex 9 x 9 with a glass lid), place all ingredients EXCEPT THE CHEESE (sorry for the Internet "yelling" but too many friends added in the cheese before baking).  **When I double the recipe, I use a 9 x 13 pan and cover with foil**.  Bake, covered, for a total of 40 minutes, stirring after the first 15 minutes and again at 30 minutes.  Remove from oven and immediately stir in cheese.  Allow to set up for 5 minutes before serving.  Enjoy!
