Cheater Macaroni and Cheese

Total Time
Prep 5 mins
Cook 10 mins

I didn't have any milk on hand to make a proper white sauce for Mac and cheese so I decided to use the soup instead. My family loves this. Adjust the amount of cheese according to taste or variety of cheese, ie. sharp or medium.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook macaroni until done and drain in colander.
  2. While macaroni is draining warm the condensed soup (undiluted) and add grated cheese stirring until melted.
  3. Add the drained pasta and mix well.
  4. Serve and enjoy!

The taste certainly did deserve a 5 star, but I did need to add about a half of cup of milk to thin it down (that takes the 'cheater' away) I did use 2 cups of cheddar, so perhaps thats what attributed to the thickeness of it, too thick to mix it all together w/o it being a gob. We all enjoyed it certainly is a make it again treat! April 09, 2005
