How to Make Sara's Macaroni and Cheese


  • 1Start the pasta, follow directions on box for your desired tenderness.
  • 2In a medium size sauce pan, pour your milk or cream. Cube velveeta for easier, more consistent melting. Over medium heat melt the velveeta in the milk/cream. After the velveeta melts add your additional cheese.
  • 3Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  • 4Drain the pasta. In the larger pot mix the pasta and the cheese sauce. At this point you can add any mix-ins. I will either add 1/2 pound of bacon or ham (optional).
  • 5Grease 2 qt casserole dish. Pour Macaroni and Cheese into casserole dish. Put casserole dish into pre-heated oven.
  • 6Bake for 15 mins. Cool for a few minutes before eating.
