Easy Macaroni and Cheese

Try this creamy, no-bake version of macaroni and cheese. It’s better for you than making it out of a box, and it doesn’t take that much longer.


Bring a pot of water to boil over high heat. Add 1/8 teaspoon of the salt. Cook the pasta according to the pasta directions, drain, and return to the pot.

Meanwhile, in a large saucepan, whisk together the milk, flour, remaining salt, and onion powder until blended. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, whisking frequently. Reduce heat to low and simmer, stirring often, until thickened, about 2 minutes. Remove the pan from heat and whisk in the cheese and hot sauce. Add the sauce to the pasta; toss to mix and coat.
