One-Pot Mac and Cheese
You won’t believe how simple this creamy mac and cheese is to pull together.

Ingredients

  • 2 1/2 cups skim milk
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 3 cups finely grated old cheddar
  • 1/2 cup mascarpone
  • 2 tsp Dijon mustard , (optional)

Directions

  • Boil milk with water, butter and salt in a pot over medium.
  • Add macaroni. Cook, stirring often, until macaroni is tender, 10 to 12 min. (It’s OK if it’s a little saucy.)
  • Remove from heat. Stir in cheddar, mascarpone and mustard until cheese melts.

Packing tip

Combine cheeses with mustard in a plastic container. Keep in cooler until ready to cook and stir into pasta when tender.
