Stovetop Mac and Cheese

This is one of kids favorite dish. It's a creamy and rich comfort food. My kids enjoy this every time i make this recipe. It's an easy one pot pasta dish.

I also make a bake version of mac and cheese which is awesomely delicious with buttery bread crust. I will soon post that version soon.

This is a simple version of Mac and Cheese which can be easily served for a crowd in minutes. Basically cook the pasta as per the package instruction. In meanwhile make a sauce with butter, flour and milk and flavor the sauce with nutmeg, chili powder and onion powder and for the cheese i use shredded cheddar cheese.Once the cheese melts i make the sauce nice thick and rich and then i toss in the pasta.


Ingredients :

Elbow Pasta - 4 cups
Butter - 1/2 cup
Flour - 1/2 cup
Whole Milk - 2 cups
Cheddar Cheese - 2 cups
Nutmeg - 1 pinch / 1/8 Teaspoon
Cayenne pepper - 1/4 Teaspoon
Onion Powder - 1/4 Teaspoon
Salt and Pepper

Procedure : 

Cook the pasta in lot of water as per the instructions on the box.

In a large pan add butter once melted add all purpose flour and whisk until well combined.

Once the flour is cooked a bit (Color changes a bit) add milk and whisk well until flour mixture is well combined with milk and bring this to a boil.

Add nutmeg, cayenne pepper and onion powder and mix well. By this time the milk would have thickened.

Next add the cheese and mix until its melted and combined with milk and becomes a creamy sauce add salt and pepper as needed (taste and decide).

Toss in the cooked and drained pasta and mix well until all the pasta is coated with sauce.

Serve hot!
