3 Ingredient Homemade Mac N cheese

This recipe is literally just noodles, cheese, and milk! Use what you have on hand! Any cheese, or milk, or noodle combination you like! Just go for it, it tastes so great!

Just start by boiling your noodles in a small pan. Then drain the excess water. Add half the noodles to a pan, then top with grated or cut up cheese. Layer it, pour some milk over the top, bake, and serve! It’s that easy!

This is such a great comfort meal and you can easily dress it up with a side salad, or some frozen or fresh veggies on the side. My family loves this dinner!

It also, makes for a great lunch, when I am at home with the kids. It’s nice because, I usually buy my noodles in bulk from Costco. So, I can just make a little bit or a lot depending on who I am feeding.

I hope you love this super easy and tasty recipe! Watch out though, it’s not the greatest on the waistline due to the high carb content! 😉 But every once and a while it’s so perfect to splurg a little! Enjoy!
