Macaroni and Cheese


Make this in a pot and don't drain...turns out like a "from scratch" version of Kraft Dinner...without the guilt! AND...it is SO EASY!! :)

~ Macaroni and Cheese ~

2 cups water
2 cups macaroni noodles
1 cup milk (I use skim)
1 Tbsp butter
1/2 cup minced onion

Melt butter in medium sized pot and fry onions until turning translucent. Add in remaining ingredients turn heat to medium. Stir frequently until the liquid is absorbed and the noodles are softened. (Approximately 15 minutes)

Add in 2 cups grated cheddar cheese and a few shakes of parmesan cheese. Stir until melted and serve. This makes about 3 adult-sized portions.

That sounds easy enough. I love to find ways to make things myself instead of buying the package. I'll give this a try.

This looks so good Camille :)Thanks for sharing. I never had Mac & Cheese growing up. Michael on the other hand grew up with it and LOVES it and I also make it from scratch for him.

Have a beautiful day in the Lord!
