Just Like California Pizza Kitchen Mac & Cheese

Total Time

My family loves the macaroni and cheese at California Pizza Kitchen, so I tinkered around and came pretty close to it. Enjoy!


  1. Cook pasta in boiling water for 10 - 12 minutes until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, cut the Velveeta into cubes and add it to the cream and butter in a large saucepan over low heat, stirring often.
  3. Drain pasta well and add to Velveeta mixture and gently mix to coat.

Both of my kids love the Mac n cheese at CPK. I found this recipe online and made it for 5 kids ranging from 2-8 Yrs old. for a sleepover that they had. They ate the entire pound of pasta. They couldn't get enough of it. My kids said it tastes just like CPK's. Fast, easy, and tasty.
