    Question:Creamettes- Baked- Macaroni- and- Cheese

    Can I assemble macaroni and cheese ahead and bake it a couple of days later?

    Not really, the cooked macaroni will absorb all the cheese sauce and it will be very dry.

    You could make the cheese sauce a few days ahead and keep it in a covered container in the fridge until needed. Then toss the freshly cooked and drained macaroni with the cheese sauce and bake according to your recipe.

    I would not. The pasta will continue to absorb liquid from the sauce, which also might separate or congeal or otherwise change texture. If you need to make it ahead of time, I'd bake it and then refrigerate it. Reheat in micro or low oven. You can divide it into serving portions and reheat as many as you need.
