Maybe not best ever but easiest ever. I hate cooking macaroni and this worked well. I had some cottage cheese and a craving for mac and cheese so this was perfect. I used ruffles pasta. Clueless on the seasoning so used about 1/2 tsp sriracha and 1 tsp yellow prepared mustard. Also added 2 eggs but that might not have been my best idea ever. Need to make sure the pasta is evenly distributed.
LOVED the ease of this recipe!!! Didn't change a thing and even my son, who hates cottage cheese, raved about it many, many times throughout dinner and said I need to make this more often. Thank you for a fun, easy and delicious recipe!
5 stars for ease of prep and taste! Loved that I didn't have to cook the macaroni first! Also, for those who are unsure as I was, 12 oz shredded cheese is approx 3 cups. I used a couple different kinds of cheese, odds and ends I had left over. Also, I skipped the hot sauce. The last 10 minutes I threw some panko on top - uncovered - and browned under the broiler. This added the crunchy crust I so love on Mac and Cheese. Next time I think I will substitute 1 cup of hot milk for 1 of the cups of water to make it creamier. A nice alternative to high fat mac and cheeses! Thanks for posting!!
Finally a recipe that worked really well with tofu shirataki noodles (minus the water, since they are precooked)...healthy mac and cheese - yeah :-)
OMG, this was so good. I tossed in some spinach and garlic to make it even better!
Love this recipe! I made it the other night and it was a hit with everyone. Child #3, who doesn't eat much, had seconds. Child #4, who doesn't like noodles, had thirds!! Will make this again. I didn't have creole seasoning; used several dashes of Tabasco instead.
