This was fast and tasted good. I did make some changes to use what I had on hand. I used 4 slices american cheese in place of velveeta. I used 1 full cup of sharp cheddar cheese. I used 1/4 cup milk in place of the cream. And about 2 1/2 cups pasta. This was great, just as easy to make as box mac and cheese. More like two servings... definately not 4 unless this is a side dish.
FYI DO NOT SALT THE PASTA WATER!!!! I usually salt my water for boiling my pasta but this recipe does not need that. It reasulted in a slightly too salty dish but I know that next time it will be perfect.
This was great. The cheddar cheese used was medium. The Velveeta made the dish creamy. I did not notice a velveeta taste at all. The only difference was more than 2 tablespoons of heavy cream was added to desired consistency. I also doubled the recipe...glad I did. Will have to try with sharp cheese just to see how it turns out. Enjoy!
HELPFUL TIPS: If you like Velveeta from the box at the store then it may be better to just buy that b/c that's what you're getting here (exactly). I don't even think you'll get credit for making it yourself since I'd take the box over this. I told my husband what this was called (Restaurant Style Mac & Cheese) and he said "Whose restaurant?" lol If you're looking for restaurant style you may want to consider something else. If you're in college and love your velveeta this is it except a load more of excess cheese. I love cheese... heck it could be my middle name but even with 2C of macaroni... it was too much. Sorry!
This was awesome fresh off the stove -- so creamy and much like Boston Market Mac & Cheese -- however it didn't warm up very well after spending the night in the fridge -- A total keeper if freshly made but not for leftovers... Thanks!!
This really is creamy and delicious. I used whole milk instead because that is all I had, and I just used as much as I needed to get the right consistency, and it worked out fine. My only advice is to make sure you use a good brand of processed cheese, it makes all the difference.
It would've been 5 stars if I would've used less processed cheese than the recipe called for---- way too cheesie but underneath all that cheesiness is a great dish.. It does remind me of Boston Market or even KFC like other reviewers said!
Easier than the blue box and twice as good. Couldn't resist adding a good dab of butter and more cream. I served this in individual dishes topped with buttered bread crumbs and broiled until golden brown. Made even better as "Truffled Lobster Mac and Cheese" by adding white truffle butter and hefty chunks of cooked lobster meat.
