A simple homemade mac n cheese recipe seems to be a staple in many households. I don't personally like it but my children are mac n cheese fiends. A few years back I searched for an easy recipe that my kids loved but nothing seemed to appeal to them. I eventually came up with with our shells and parmesan recipe that all the kids like.
This recipe is quick and easy and not full of complex flavors so it's great for the pickier set.
In a large pot combine the water, evaporated milk, butter, pasta and salt. Bring to a boil. Boil uncovered for 9-12 minutes, until pasta is tender. Stir frequently. Remove from heat. DO NOT DRAIN. Add the parmesan and Italian seasoning and mix well until cheese is melted. Add salt and pepper to taste. Let sit so sauce will thicken for a few minutes. Serve with freshly grated parmesan.
If your kids are like mine they'll enjoy this and you'll have leftovers for the lunchbox the next day. Win win! Let me know if you try this. I'd love to hear what you thought!
