The sauce for this creamy mac and cheese uses just three ingredients.

It’s tempting to buy boxed mac and cheese at the grocery store, especially when the weather starts to get colder. It’s super creamy and delicious and so easy to make. However, homemade mac and cheese is just as easy to make. And, when you make mac and cheese at home you can control what goes into it; if you want to eat a little healthier you can use whole-wheat noodles or add some roasted vegetables, if you want to spice it up you can add fresh herbs to the cheese sauce. There are endless ways to customize homemade mac and cheese no matter your taste.

This recipe proves how easy homemade mac and cheese can be. Simply combine the cooked noodles with an easy three-ingredient cheese sauce, top with shredded Cheddar cheese, and then bake the mac and cheese in the oven until it’s warm, gooey, and golden. Does it get any better than that?
