Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat oven to 350*.
  • Cook elbow macaroni according to box directions (drain and set aside).
  • While pasta is cooking, melt the butter in a medium bowl.
  • Combine butter w/all of the ingredients (EXCEPT the cheese) and microwave for 3 minutes, checking/stirring regularly as to not burn (cook time WILL vary w/microwave).
  • Add cheese to thickened white sauce and microwave for 1 minute at 70% power (if cheese isn't completely melted upon stirring, microwave a little longer).
  • Mix white sauce and pasta in a round 2 quart casserole dish...here's where mom and I differ. I prefer to serve now, all saucy and gooey while *mom prefers to bake for 20-30 minutes in the oven at 350 (until top is browned).

    This was super fast, easy and delicious! I threw in a couple of tablespoons of chili garlic sauce for a bit of kick.

    Ohhh yeah. I WOWed the skeptical last night with this one; you know, the ones who had never really had homemade mac & cheese. They pretty much licked the bowl clean. haha My only change was to add a healthy splash of worchestershire to the roux. Which I did on the stove-top because I'm anti-microwave. But this one is quick. Easy. And pretty much fool-proof. Loved it!.

    Yum! This is a great alternative to the normal yellow cheddar cheese in the mac! Has a nice bite! I agree with lovestohost that it's better before you bake it. Baking it makes it not near as creamy and liquid-y. I did only bake it for like 15 minutes though....so going the whole 25 woulda been way to long for my taste. Thanks for the great recipe!

    I love using evaporated milk for cheese sauce - it makes it so velvety and smooth. Can't go wrong with Worcestershire sauce, either. Great recipe! Thanks for sharing. - Natalie

    Thanks for the recipe. I've finally found a homemade mac & cheese recipe that my boys will eat, they usually turn their nose up at the stuff (for some reason they prefer the boxed stuff), but they gobbled this down in no time, in fact I didn't get more than a bite. I was a little skepticle about using the microwave for the sauce but I had other stuff on the stove and the microwave worked perfect. Thanks so much.

    WOW!!! That's all I can say. This is amazing! I agree with you...don't much like baked mac and cheese, so I served it straight off the stove top. Thanks for a great recipe :-)

    I made this for dinner tonight, and it was fabulous! I loved the addition of the worcestershire and mustard, it really gave it great flavor. Thanks for the recipe!

    I always add mustard to my mac, but I have to admit I'm spoiled now since using Kozlick's Garlic Mustard (yay for the St. Lawrence Market!) - it adds a great hot element!
