Friday Foods: Stove Top Mac and Cheese

mac and cheese

I’ve been having a craving for macaroni and cheese for a while now and there was no place near my office that made any so I had to make some at home. Having never made it before, I had to find a recipe that wasn’t so complicated to replicate.

400g macaroni
1/4 stick of butter
1 cup of shredded tasty cheddar
1/4 tsp nutmeg powder (optional)

Boil the macaroni in salted, boiling water according to the package instructions or until al dente.

Drain the boiled pasta but keep some of the starchy liquid. Dump the pasta into another pot or pan,over a medium fire.

Add in the butter and some of the starchy liquid from boiling the pasta.

Add in the cheese and stir the whole thing well, until all the cheese and butter has melted and all the pasta is evenly covered.

Sprinkle the nutmeg powder and mix well.

Serve with more cheese or a sprinkling of shopped parsley on the top.

It’s not hard to do at all. You can make your own variations by adding frozen mixed vegetables, bacon bits or ham or anything else that you want. It’s that versatile.
