Macaroni and Cheese

This is a simple macaroni and cheese recipe, which doesn’t involve making a rue. It can be done in one pot. The pasta water will bring the sauce all together. It is extremely important to not drain off that pasta water.

Serves: 3 to 4 people


For cooking macaroni:
1 cup Macaroni
1 3/4 cup Water
1/4 tsp Salt

For cheese sauce:
4 tbsp Butter
1/4 cup Milk
3 oz Cheddar (cut into small chunks)
4 slices of American Cheese

Other tools:
Pot and Lid


  1. Add water to a pot and bring to boil on the stove.
  2. Add salt and macaroni, then stir.
  3. Cook until pasta is fully cooked, about 5 to 7 minutes. Do not overcook pasta!
  4. When pasta is about 2 minutes from being done, add the butter.
  5. When pasta is done add milk, stir and return to light boil.
  6. Turn off heat. Add cheddar, and American cheese. Stir then cover with lid.
  7. Wait about 7 minutes for everything to melt, then uncover and stir. Your macaroni and cheese is now done.
  8. If cheese needs to melt a little more, then you can turn the heat on low and stir for a little bit to finish.
