Easy Mac And Cheese Recipe

  • 1 (8 ounce) box elbow macaroni
  •  1/4 cup butter
  • 2 oz cream cheese, cut in cubes
  •  1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  •  2 cups milk
  •  2 cups shredded cheese such as cheddar or colby jack
  •  1/2 teaspoon salt
  • Black pepper to taste
Optional:  you can add a splash of hot sauce or a tsp of mustard powder if desired


1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in boiling water, stirring occasionally, and cooking according to package directions.  I prefer to cook mine al dente and not overcook.
2. Meanwhile in a separate pan, melt butter in a medium to large sauce pan over medium heat; stir in cream cheese until well combined. Stir in flour, salt, and pepper until smooth, about 5 minutes. Slowly pour milk into pan while stirring until mixture is smooth and starting to gently boil, about 3-5 minutes. Add cheese to mixture and stir until cheese is melted and well combined.
Pour cheese sauce over drained macaroni and stir gently until cheese sauce is well combined with pasta.  Serve immediately.
