Do you ever have those days where you are so busy with a hundred things going on and you get to 5 o’clock and haven’t even taken a thought about what is for dinner?
So, over the years I have put a few good 30 minutes recipes in my repertoire (with pantry ingredients) that I can whip up on those days. And homemade mac n’ cheese is one meal that no one in my house will complain about. It’s fast, it’s easy and I put it on the table with a salad to call dinner done.
Here is my recipe:
1/2 stick of butter melted in a sauce pan.
Add 1/4 cup flour to the melted butter to make a thick roux.
When the roux has cooked about 2 mins, add 3 cups milk and stir until thick.
Add 2 cups of your favorite cheeses. (Sharp cheddar and parmesan are my favorite.)
Then I add spices to the cheddar sauce…..mustard powder, salt, pepper, a dash of red pepper flakes and a pinch of nutmeg.
Stir in 1 box of cooked macaroni.
And you are done!
What is your favorite 30 minute meal? I would LOVE some new ideas!!!
