Delicious 20 minute macaroni and cheese recipe. This is a keeper

Mac and cheese is one of my go-to’s.  You’ll find it on my weekly menu 9 times out of ten. While I like to do different varieties like my Taco Mac and Cheese recipe which I’ve already shared it all starts with this basic recipe. You can use whatever cheese you want but I think it’s good to use two different types of cheese. Most of the time I use Havarti and Colby Jack because that’s what I usually have on hand but I’ve made it with pepper jack, brie, sharp cheddar and more. The key is to have variety. Ingredients

World’s Best Easy Mac and Cheese Recipe

Easy and delicious cupboard mac and cheese recipeIngredients

  • 4 ounces pasta (small elbows or shells are my favorite)
  • 2 TBS Salted butter
  • 2 TBS All purpose flour
  • 1 C Milk
  • 1-2 ounce Havarti (I use sliced cheese I have on hand)
  • 1/4 to 1/2 C Colby Jack Cheese
  • Salt and Pepper to taste
  • dash of grated nutmeg
  • dash of powdered onion


  1. Boil the pasta. When done drain making sure to reserve 1/2 C of the pasta water.
  2. In a separate pan large enough to hold all the pasta (I use a wok) melt the butter and combine with flour. Cook over medium heat for a minute or two.
  3. Slowly whisk in milk and cook while it thickens.
  4. Add in remaining ingredients. Taste and add any additional cheese or seasoning to suit your preference.
  5. Stir in drained pasta.
  6. If you want your sauce a little thinner add in some of the reserved water. I usually add at least 1/4 C since the sauce will thicken up as it cools and I prefer a saucier mac and cheese.
