Creamy macaroni and cheese made in one pot, dinner in less than 30 minutes. Macaroni and Cheese is a favorite at our house, how about yours?
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • 1 (12 oz) can evaporated milk
  • 12 oz elbow macaroni - I used rototini
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon hot sauce
  • 2 cups sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  1. Add the water, salt and 1 cup of the evaporated milk to a large pan. Bring to a simmer and add the pasta. Cook over medium heat, just below a boil for about 10 minutes or until pasta is tender. Stir several times while it is cooking.
  2. In a small bowl mix together the remaining evaporated milk, cornstarch, dry mustard and hot sauce. When the pasta is done stir in this mixture and stir until incorporated and thickened.
  3. Remove from heat and start adding the cheese, a handful at a time. Stir until it melts. After you get all of the cheese in, stir in the butter. Serve.
