Who doesn’t love a good bowl of homemade mac and cheese? While I love the baked mac and cheese I don’t always have time to make it. This time I made a stovetop version loosely based off this recipe.
I have a large bag of pasta noodles (macaroni in this case) that I dumped a bunch into a boiling pan of water and cooked until al dente. Probably about 10 oz?
As it drained I made the sauce using a bit more than a 1/4 cup butter, 1/3 cup flour with seasonings, I used garlic salt and pepper, Mix that together well in the bottom of the pot you used to cook the pasta. It’ll be thick.
THEN as you are stirring SLOWLY add the milk (abit more than 2 cups).
As you are stirring get your son to grab some cheese, in this case some Havarti. He grated up 1/2 the brick (so about 200 grams) and slowly added it to my milk mixture before tearing off after our new cat.
Add your pasta back to the pot and stir well.
On the side have some ketchup, bacon bits and parmesan cheese.
Let everyone help themselves and garnish as they please.
Enjoy. Made enough servings for hubby to have two bowls, the lad one, and me four (over two meals).
