Recipe: YUMMY Stovetop Mac & Cheese

Hey cupcakes! One of the things I am looking forward to after graduation is the fact that I will be able to start cooking for myself again 👍 Through my experience living in my own apartment last summer, I learned that meals that are quick, easy, and delicious are some of the best things to cook! As an Italian, I pride myself in being a pasta lover, so I wanted to share a mac and cheese recipe with you all today. Bonus - you only need one pan (and of course, it is super tasty)!

What You Need:
-1.5 cups milk
-1 to 1.5 cups of water
-8 oz. of macaroni noodles
-.5 tsp salt
-A dash of ground pepper
-4 oz. of shredded/grated sharp cheddar cheese

What To Do:
1. In a medium sized pot over medium heat, combine milk, 1 cup of the water, macaroni, salt and pepper.
2. Bring to a low simmer, stirring frequently (which prevents the milk from boiling over and making a mess).
3. Once it is simmering, reduce the heat to low. Stir continuously until the pasta is cooked to your liking (usually about 8-10 minutes). If the pasta needs more liquid, add the rest of the water in small increments while your noodles are cooking.
4. When the pasta is done and the sauce is creamy, remove the pot from heat.
5. Stir in the grated cheese a small bit at a time until everything is nice and gooey.
6. Add more salt and/pepper to taste. Enjoy! 🍽
