3 Ingredient Mac And Cheese Recipe
- Cook pasta– In this recipe, we’ll be cooking pasta in very little water. Drain the excess water and reserve about 2-3 tablespoons of water which actually goes back into the saucepan.
- Add evaporated milk – The one ingredient that converts this classic dish into a 3 ingredient masterpiece. It acts as a sauce thickener and is the secret to making creamy and smooth sauce. After adding evaporated milk, bring the mixture to a boil.
- Add cheese – Opt for grated cheddar in this recipe. I have used a combo of white and red cheddar, but you can opt for Gruyère or pepperjack for sharper flavor. Cook until the cheese melts and you have ooey gooey creamy mac and cheese
