The trick to spending more time outside is to have a few quick and delicious meals in the plans. That way there’s no excuse after school or work but to grab a bite and head out for an evening of snowshoeing.

This simple mac & cheese fits that category. As quick and simple to make as a box of KD but with more flavours and just a handful of simple ingredients. Plus the kids love it, always a bonus!

Simple Mac & Cheese

With a meal that simple, all you have left is to enjoy it!

Author JP Fortin

Ingredients

  • 300 g macaroni or other similar pasta
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 2 tbsp flour
  • 1.5 cup milk
  • 1.25 cup grated orange cheddar
  • 0.25 cup parmesan
  • 3 tbsp pizza sauce

Instructions

  1. As promised, this is a quick and easy recipe. First, cook the pasta.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour, mix well and cook for 2-3 minutes before adding ½ cup of milk. Mix the flour and milk well. It will have a thick consistency.

  3. Add the rest of the milk and bring to a boil while mixing. As soon as it starts to boil, reduce to low heat. Incorporate the pizza sauce and cheeses, mixing well until all the cheese is melted.

  4. By then the pasta should be cooked. Drain the pasta and combine with the cheese sauce.
