Our Cheese Magazine features this recipe:
I have been using this recipe at my food bank tastings this whole month.
We make this as a regular go-to recipe in our house. Today the only cheese I had was mozerella so I took a chance and used only that cheese. YUMM!! It turned out great. Oh, and I didn't have macaroni so i used a different shaped pasta...
I've always considered myself a mac n cheese snob -- I only like the expensive kinds (Stouffers). This recipe was HANDS DOWN the best mac n cheese I've ever tasted, and it was SO easy to make!
I'm going to use this recipe with my classes -- and we'll be sure to look at the nutrition labels too (comparing against the name brands). Some of the big brands try to fool you with a fat content of only 3 grams -- but that is for *uncooked*. When prepared per directions on the box, the fat content is off the charts, making the Food Hero recipe the healthier choice. And this recipe was a "normal" color, not that weird, fake, orange!
This is the easiest homemade mac & cheese recipe I have ever made! When I first added the milk mixture I thought there was way too much sauce, but once it thickened up it was the perfect amount! I also added 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder and black pepper in step 4 and it really added to the flavor. I can't wait to make this again and try adding spinach!
This is SUCH a quick and easy mac & cheese recipe, I love it! I sometimes like to add spinach and call it "Green Mac" :)
Everyone went for seconds! Super easy. Steamed some broccoli for a side dish which was perfect.
This was a decent quick meal made from items we have in our pantry. It was a bit grainy, but I don't think stirred in the flour enough. All the kids had seconds.
Stirring the flour mixture with the small amount of milk until it is thoroughly mixed and there are no lumps would be important to have a smooth sauce. A grainy texture could also come from using a sharp cheese. So glad your kids enjoyed it!

So good! It was really cheesy and the celery added a nice crunch! I think I will add more of the veggies next time!
