Could there ever be enough ways to enjoy Mac ‘n Cheese? I don’t think so. There are just so many wonderful tweaks and takes on how to do it well, that it’s pure fun to keep trying new recipes. And because it’s such a beloved dish, I doubt you’d ever get pushback from your family on serving too much of their favorite thing!
My Traditional Baked Macaroni and Cheese starts the old fashioned way, with dry, uncooked pasta. You’ll be pleasantly surprised by how much flavor cooks right into the macaroni as it bakes. It does take a little longer to cook, but it’s also time you’ve saved by not boiling the pasta on the stove. You start by tossing the shredded cheese with cornstarch, a trick that helps the cheese stay thick and creamy as it melts.

And here’s another great one to try – Mac ‘n Cheese with Sausage & Peas, Please. This one is not your typical shells and cheese recipe. Adding in the sausage and peas steps this dish up from average to exceptional. Want to personalize it? Try smoked sausage for a little more kick, or try turkey sausage for a healthier twist.
