I Can't Get Enough Of Macaroni & Cheese

Macaroni & Cheese

Made with Cavatappi pasta, sharp cheddar cheese, pepper jack cheese, smoked white cheddar cheese, Gouda cheese, milk, salt & pepper, red pepper flakes, Cheez-Its, and Parmesan cheese.

Well, Miss Nancy of “Feasting With Friends” had to go showing off macaroni and cheese in my face as if I haven’t had enough of it already.  And it looked marvelously good.  It’s all I could think about since she posted it to her blog.

So I had no other choice but to hop my way to the grocery store to get said ingredients.

Shredded cheeses

Because Nancy suggests NOT using pre-packaged cheeses, my right arm is now 10 times the size of my left arm with all the grating I had to do.  Yeah, there were lashings of cheeses all over the place once the shredding was done—but I’m not complaining.

Once all the cheeses melted into the milk, it was drenched all over the pasta.

Now it’s ready for baking in the oven.  I didn’t make mines quite as soupy as Nancy did and I had much bigger hunks of Cheez-Its for the topping.  It turned out OH SO DELICIOUS!

Thank you, Miss Nancy for shoving mac & cheese in my face!  It made my day.

Recipe for—Nancy’s Macaroni & Cheese

So, if you have nothing else to do today, try either making or eating some homemade macaroni and cheese—or both.  If for no other reason than the love of cheese.

Take-Away Life Lesson:  Apparently grating lots of cheese for a long period of time can give your one arm that Incredible Hulk look—which basically puts weights/dumbbells out of business.  Don’t forget to switch off arms lest you walk around with one skinny arm and one bulky arm.

  1. Not everybody can make mac and cheese, as I’m sure you know…but your mac and cheese looks gooooood! THAT is mac and cheese. My mouth actually watered looking at it haha. I feel like such a foodie saying that. Nicely done 😉

  2. can not go wrong with the homemade m&c. This one looks especially amazing with ALL THAT CHEESE!!!! Love it 🙂 Thanks for sharing.

  3. What is it about mac ‘n’ cheese that makes it so VERY enticing? It goes beyond “comfort food” . . . into “obsession food”. Especially if there is crunch involved. Am I right? ;->

  4. Mac & C – a long standing bachelor food so many variations. Some time with a little ground beef, some time crumbled Italian sausage, some time broccoli, some time peas and mushrooms. I like bread crumb topping but sprinkle stove top stuffing gives it more crunch. Often use cream celery soup as base.

  5. If you want to avoid all that grating, try this method:
    Cut the cheeses into medium size cubes, place in a food processor with the metal blade, add 1 Tbs flour and process the whole thing until the cheese is coarsely grated The flour prevents the cheese from becoming one sticky mush when processing and the whole thing takes about 1 minute.
    This method obviously works only for dishes like this one, when you melt the cheese anyways… 🙂

  6. Lol! Soooo glad you enjoyed your Mac & cheese! Your version looks delicious 😛 (and that new camera is really working for you…great photos!)
