Today is the first day of Comfort Week here at Real Mom Kitchen and what a better way to start the week than with Stovetop Mac and Cheese – gooey, creamy, yummy, cheesy goodness. I decided to try a recipe that I found in the Oct. 2009 issue of Martha Stewart’s Everyday Food.
I loved the fact that the recipe is made completely on the stovetop. Sometimes the oven versions tend to dry out. I also liked that this recipe only required one type of cheese. This recipe was so simple to make and was delicious. I did adapt the recipe slightly. In my opinion, the original recipe was a little too cheesy. So I ended up adding more cooked pasta. I also don’t keep whole milk on hand, so I used 1 cup cream and 3 cups of skim milk in it’s place. Then for fun I used fusilli pasta.
I really think you will love this Stovetop Mac and Cheese version. I think it is my new fav go to. I do have some other mac and cheese recipe that are also wonderful if you want to check them out – Pioneer Woman’s Mac and Cheese and Deluxe Macaroni and Cheese.Print
