No waiting for water to boil.
No straining the pasta.
No making sauce.
Are you ready?? Here is the recipe:
Easy Mac and Cheese*
2 1/2 cups whole wheat pasta
3 3/4 cups whole milk
1 t. sea salt
2 cups shredded cheese (I use white cheddar and colbyjack)
Mix pasta, milk and salt in a large sauce pan. Cook over medium-high heat STIRRING ALMOST CONSTANTLY until the pasta is tender (10-15 minutes). Remove from heat. Add cheese and stir until melted. Serve immediately.
This is what it looks like when you start:
Here it is when it is all finished:
It looks a little soupy in the picture but its not. It turned out really thick and creamy. The starch from the pasta mixes with the milk to make a super simple sauce. No flour or butter needed! I know it's hard to believe, but it really is that easy! You gotta try it to believe it!!
*The recipe above is not the original. I tweaked the original a little (added more salt, milk, and cheese- I like it really cheesy). For the original recipe, visit the link above.
