Ooey Gooey Mac and Cheese
IT DOES FREEZE WELL FOR LATER DATES.
4 hours on low if using Crock Pot
SIDE NOTE: I throw it under the broiler for an extra four min just because I love the top to be brown and a little crispy, but again that's personal preference. I made it again this weekend and instead of pepper jack I used Cabots Habanero Cheddar. It was very spicy but SOOO good. =)
Blue Ribbon Recipe
I always say that the more cheese you can fit in your mac & cheese, the better! True to form, this is one stellar recipe. We loved the addition of pepper jack and the creaminess just can't be beat! The Test Kitchen

How to Make Ooey Gooey Mac and Cheese
- Preheat oven to 350.
- Cook pasta according to pasta directions just until done - You don't want it mushy because it will absorb a little of the cheesy liquid in the oven.
- Combine soup, evaporated milk, butter, salt, and pepper in a large microwaveable bowl. Cover with plastic wrap, leaving a small vent, and cook for 6-7 minutes until the butter is melted and the mixture is warm-to-hot throughout. (If making a half batch, 4 minutes in the microwave should do it).
- Add to cooked pasta.
- Add cheeses one at a time, stirring constantly until everything is melted and incorporated.
- Bake for 40-45 minutes.
- FOR CROCK POT: Follow directions 1-5, leave your crock pot on low and cook for 4 hours.
