Cheese + Carbs= my kryptonite. I know I’m not the only one 😉 I came up with this because I didn’t feel like going to the grocery store, and I always feel good when I am able to use what is available in my pantry and fridge. Macaroni and cheese is a great meal to make when you’re short on time and ingredients because it’s made with ingredients most of you probably have on hand. The cheese blend is gooey, melty and slightly spicy. Also, the ratio of cheese sauce to pasta is about 2 to 1! I could have cooked up at least 3/4 of a pound for the amount, so if you need to feed about 8 people, I recommend boiling up more pasta. We all enjoyed this and the kids and I love adding ketchup to any mac and cheese recipe – this is no exception. I love the tangy sweetness that it gives to the rich, cheesy pasta. Thanks for reading, enjoy!
Triple Cheesy Pasta –
- 8 ounces dry pasta
- 1 cup milk
- 1 cup half and half
- 4 TBSP flour
- 4 TBSP unsalted butter
- 1 tsp dry mustard
- 1/2 tsp kosher salt
- 1/2 tsp seasoned salt
- 1/4 tsp pepper
- 1/8 tsp cayenne and paprika (optional)
- 3/4 pound of shredded cheese ( I used cheddar, mozzarella and pepper jack) reserve about 1 cup for the topping
- 1/2 cup panko bread crumbs
I guess I am not the only one craving cheese this week. This looks so creamy and delicious.
Yes! This fulfilled my craving 🙂 I forgot to mention, that the crumb topping tasted like Cheez It crackers 🙂
Made this tonight! It was yummy thank you!
Yay! I’m glad you enjoyed it 🙂
