How to cook my mac & cheese
Baked in the oven, extra cheesy, and peppery - this isn't anything close to boxed Mac & Cheese. And my kids LOVE it!
Cook pasta per package directions, and drain. While the pasta cooks, shred & dice your cheeses.
Cube 1/2 of each cheese block, and shred the other half. I used extra sharp cheddar ...
And pepper jack. Experiment with different cheeses for new tastes!
In a small bowl, whisk together everything but the cheese. Mix well with the cooked drained pasta.
Stir in your cubed cheese. Pour it all into a 9x13 baking dish & sprinkle with fresh cracked pepper. Place in 375*f oven for 20 minutes, or until cheese is melted & starting to brown.
With ten minutes left on the timer, remove pan & sprinkle the buttery cracker mixture liberally over the top. Return to oven to finish cooking.
Don't you wish you had taste-o-vision?
