One Pot Mac and Cheese – Here’s how it works (1 min)
A small confession in advance:
Prior to this One Pot variant, I last ate Mac and Cheese during my exchange to LA. Which is also six years ago (Whaaaat ?!). For the authenticity of this Easypeasy version, I do not put my hand on fire.
But let’s face it. It can not be better than macaroni with a cartload of spicy cheese and a little freshly ground pepper.
We are talking about deliciously creamy One Pot Mac and Cheese, which gets the perfect consistency from the cheese. In addition, the cheddar provides neat taste and makes the fast soulfood hearty and rich.
Also: Six ingredients, two of which are salt and pepper – it could not be easier!
All you need for this one pot recipe are noodles (best of course in macaroni form), milk, butter, cheese, salt and pepper. Sounds practical? It is!
You just take what cheese you have in the house. The important thing is that you choose a cheese with a proper taste. I like cheddar, emmentaler or parmesan. Happy mixed, that gives the whole thing a special kick.
Here’s how it works:
For the One Pot Mac and Cheese you put pasta, milk and butter in a pot. Let the whole thing simmer for 10 minutes …
… until the noodles have absorbed the liquid and are al dente. Now you just pick up a handful of grated cheese and season with salt and pepper. Finished. All Amerian Soulfood at its best!
And sometimes among us: the sight of slow-melting, delicious stringy cheese is absolutely deluxe. Add a little salt and pepper and then you will be able to nibble the first spoon out of the pot. This is part of the Mac and Cheese Code of Honor!
One Pot Mac and Cheese is:
- Extra Cheesy.
- 15 minutes on the table.
