Mac and Cheese… the EASY way!

I like mac and cheese, but I don’t like the drudgery of making it myself, and I don’t like most packaged products… besides, I know how cheap it should be, and hate paying more for it than I have to. A few months ago, I tried a new method, and now I have M&C for work or lunch whenever I want. I just cook 3/4 of a pound of macaroni (any kind) and while it is cooking I heat the oven to 375. I drain the macaroni, mix in a jar of Classico Alfredo sauce, crumble some crackers on top, and bake it for 30 minutes in a covered casserole. It makes three fairly large portions. If you need to stretch the recipe, just cook the full pound of pasta. If you like your M&C really “saucy,” just reduce the amount of pasta a little. Oh, one thing I do; after I pour the sauce into the pasta, I fill the jar half way with warm water and slosh it around to get the rest of the sauce out, then add it to the mix. Make sure you stir everything well. Let me know if you try this! It is really simple. I tried the Bertolini (sp?) sauce, but didn’t like it as well.

I grew up in New England, moved to the Carolinas in '98 to start working at what was then a large regional bank and is now a really big nationwide bank. I work doing intranet content management and intranet site management. After work, I practice Aikido, knit, ride my motorcycle, read, watch movies & eat. I've been studying Aikido since 2014, and I ride an old Honda Shadow. Someday I want to go skydiving, and I am pretty sure that I want to hike the Appalachian Trail someday.
