Notes

This recipe is adapted from Kraft's Baked Macaroni and Cheese recipe. For more Velveeta recipes, visit their website.

Ingredients

  • 8 Ounces soft yellow cheese, such as Velveeta or American
  • ½ Cup milk
  • 4 Ounces shredded mozzarella cheese
  • Pinch of cracked black pepper
  • Pinch of ground nutmeg
  • 2 Cups pasta noodles, cooked until al dente

Directions

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Coat a 1-quart baking dish with butter.

Heat the Velveeta cheese and milk in a saucepan over medium low heat, stirring until well blended. Then, add the mozzarella and continue heating the cheese sauce gently, stirring occasionally, until fully combined.

When the cheese is fully melted, add the black pepper and nutmeg. Then, stir in the pasta.

Pour the macaroni and cheese into the baking dish, cover with foil, and cook in the oven until heated through, about 20-30 minutes.

Mac and Cheese Shopping Tip

If a piece of cheese smells strongly of ammonia, don't buy it. This is typically a sign of spoilage.

Mac and Cheese Cooking Tip

Allow cheese to come to room temperature before serving. This will accentuate the flavors and aromas.
