In my opinon, you can never have too many mac and cheese recipes. A slightly more sophisticated version of the classic macaroni and cheese. Don't worry the kids will still love it.
- In a medium pot, bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Add a pinch of salt and the macaroni. Cook until tender, about 8 to 10 minutes.
- In a colander, drain the macaroni and return it to the pot.
- Fold in the cheese, butter and half-and-half. Season with the pepper. Warm through.
- Garnish with chopped chives.
I'm giving this 5 stars based on ease of cooking and ingredients. I'm going to add cooked chicken breast chunks mixed with Frank's Hot Sauce and chopped celery to this to make it a buffalo chicken pasta - thanks for a great base dish!
I really don't know why no one has mentioned this is WAY too much macaroni. We loved this recipe, but the macaroni should be 8 oz.
I thouroughly enjoyed this more sophisticated mac and cheese! I loved the flavors of the two cheeses used in this. I stirred some chives right into the mixture as well as using some for garnish. Another great thing is that this is very quick to make. Thanx for sharing!
