Description

This Creamy Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese takes just minutes to prepare, contains two types of cheese, and is creamy, hearty and delicious.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Cavatappi Shells
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • ¼ cups Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ½ teaspoons Pepper
  • 1 cup Milk
  • 1-¼ cup Heavy Cream
  • 1 cup Shredded Sharp Cheddar Cheese
  • 1 cup Shredded Mozzarella Cheese

Preparation

Cook noodles until al dente, per package directions. Drain and set aside.

In a medium pot over medium heat, melt butter. Then whisk in flour, salt, and pepper. Cook and stir to combine. Slowly add milk and heavy cream, whisking until combined. Heat mixture over medium heat until it bubbles.

Reduce heat to low and add cheeses. Stir until melted. Add pasta to cheese mixture and toss to combine. Remove from heat.

Really good Mac and cheese! I might experiment with different cheeses next time for a wee bit more flavor.

Delicious and easy! Added a little water to reheat the leftovers and it may have been even better the next day!
