"How to make a quick and easy mac and cheese"

Serves 4 | Prep Time 5 mins | Cook Time 30 mins

Why I Love This Recipe

It's good tasting and it's a quick prep time

Ingredients You'll Need

8 ounces large elbow macaroni

2 cups 1% low-fat milk

3 tablespoons all-purpose flour

½ teaspoon black pepper

Dash of ground red pepper

3 ounces light processed cheese, shredded (such as Velveeta Light; about 3/4 cup)

2 ½ ounces extra-sharp cheddar cheese, shredded (about 2/3 cup)

¼ teaspoon kosher salt

Cooking spray

¼ cup fresh breadcrumbs


Preheat broiler to high.

Cook pasta according to package directions; drain.

While pasta cooks, combine milk, flour, and peppers in a large saucepan, stirring with a whisk. Bring to a boil; cook for 4 minutes or until thick. Remove from heat. Add cheeses and salt; stir until smooth. Add pasta, and stir to coat. Spoon mixture into a 1 1/2-quart glass or ceramic baking dish coated with cooking spray. Sprinkle breadcrumbs evenly over top; broil 2 minutes or until browned.
