Super Creamy Macaroni and Cheese

Total Time
Prep 10 mins
Cook 20 mins

Very creamy, cream cheese adds yummy bite. Very rich, lots of variations, use onion & chive cream cheese, add diced tomatoes or ham, or both. I started making this when my son discovered mac & cheese. Kraft may be the "cheesiest" it is also the saltiest, so I keep these items on hand for lunches or comfort food dinners.

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cheddar cheese soup (Campbell's)
  • 4 ounces cream cheese (softened)
  • 2 cups cubed American cheese (Kraft makes it shaped like dinosaurs if you can't find cubes, or just tear up some slices)
  • 3 cups cooked elbow macaroni (or spirals)


  1. grease baking dish and pre-heat oven 350°F.
  2. cook and drain pasta according to directions.
  3. in saucepan melt soup cheese cubes and cream cheese over med heat, stir in pasta, stir to evenly coat.
  4. transfer to greased baking dish.
  5. bake 20 min or until bubbly.
  6. let stand 5 min before serving.

I LOVED this mac and cheese recipe! It was really creamy, unlike other homemade mac and cheese recipes. I followed the directions exactly and wouldn't change a thing. Thank you Jesse for posting!
