How to Make Impossibly Fast and Easy Mac and Cheese Pie
Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Butter a 9 inch pie plate.
Place uncooked macaroni in pie plate. Sprinkle 1 3/4 cup shredded cheese evenly over macaroni.
In a mixing bowl stir together all remaining pie ingredients. Mix until well blended. Carefully pour this over ingredients already in pie plate.
Bake for 25-30 minutes or until a knife inserted in the center of the pie comes out clean.
- FOR TOPPING PIE AT END OF BAKING:
Sprinkle with 1/4 cup cheese and bake for 2-3 minutes more to melt cheese. Let sit outside oven for 5 minutes before cutting.
If you are using this recipe for adults you may wish to add 1/4 teaspoon of dried red pepper flakes. You can also crush some seasoned croutons and sprinkle over the cheese for final couple of minutes of baking- when you add the cheese and melt it.
Or you can garnish the baked pie with paprika or fresh parsley.
