Nothing says comfort food like a bowl of hot Homemade Macaroni and Cheese!
Don’t be fooled though I actually didn’t use any macaroni noodles in the making of this dish. What if I had said, shells, rotini, penne and cheese. Would you have wonder what I was making? I am so not a fan of macaroni so I substituted this with what pasta I had in the house. This is a five ingredient dish that is perfect for a crowd or you can half it and can be great for a small group as well! We are six in the house and I could live on this dish, so it doesn’t stay around our house for too long.
Growing up one of the many memories I have is my mom always making this for us along with cookies that we do at Christmas. It was always one of my favorite things to eat and when I asked her the recipe for it, she actually didn’t have it written down. She just had to tell me about it. We have actually had many conversations about this beloved dish! This week has been kind of crazy around here because one of our little ones has been sick. She has not been able to chew real well and has only needed to eat soft foods. This dish really fit the bill for her because it is soft and moist and on the creamy side and doesn’t have strong overbearing flavors that she couldn’t eat. She has eaten it three times this week and I think I am going to have to make her another pan pretty soon!
So if you need to cook for a crowd, for a few or for a little sick one I recommend you try this! ENJOY!
