Velveeta Ultimate Macaroni and Cheese

I got this off a box of Velveeta Cheese when I saw it made on Good Morning America. The recipe is exact, i haven't changed it. I usually buy the large block of Velveeta cheese and store any unused cheese in ziploc bags, so I'm forever searching for the recipe. It's easy and fast. My family swears it tastes just like KFC! You can also put the Macaroni and Cheese in a greased casserole dish and make a topping out of 1 sleeve of crushed Ritz Crackers and 1 stick of melted butter. Combine and then sprinkle on top of casserole. Bake in 350 degree oven till top is golden brown.


  1. Cook Pasta according to directions on box then drain well.
  2. Return pasta to pot and add cheese, milk and pepper. Stir constantly over low heat until cheese is melted.
  3. Serve and enjoy!

I tried making all the "gourmet" mac & cheese recipes (with fancy cheeses, etc) until my son told me that the best mac & cheese was his aunt's. This one. It's what I make now - solid comfort food. This is really good baked in the oven, to give it a toasty crust - you can skip the crumb topping, and it's just fine.

Perfect! I used whole wheat penne pasta and followed the rest exactly. Tasted absolutely fabulous and this recipe is a keeper!

This is *gourmet comfort food* pure and simple! :) I made this using 1 cup of elbow macaroni, 6 ounces of Velveeta plus a tablespoon of butter along with the 1/3 cup milk and pepper, served with beer brats sauteed in butter for a serving for two. Thanks!
