My kids love macaroni and cheese–like most kids do. But they really love the shells and cheese type of macaroni and cheese. I have bought the Velveeta/Kraft versions before, but was hoping I could find a homemade version of the boxed kind.
I have tried many kinds where you make the sauce with butter, flour, milk and grated cheese on top of the stove and add it to the noodles, but those did not usually thrill my kids. Then a few years ago, I was at a graduation party and tasted some macaroni and cheese that was delicious! I asked the hostess how she prepared it, and I was amazed at how easy the recipe was.
All she did was:
- She cooked the noodles.
- Then she put half of the noodles in a casserole dish.
- She layed sliced Velveeta cheese on top of the noodles with a few slices of butter.
- Then she repeated the layers.
- She poured a little milk on top of the noodles.
- If you want a richer flavor, you could also sprinkle some sharp Cheddar cheese on top of the layers.
- Cook until the cheese is melted and bubbly, and viola! You have homemade macaroni and cheese!
