Make sure to REPIN this recipe 🙂

There was not any leftover Macaroni and Cheese after this meal – everyone loved it – which is always a great feeling 🙂

What I loved most about this recipe is that everything was cooked in one pot – meaning one pot clean up — AMAZING!

I do not know if it just me but I am a MESSY cook. Even when I try and limit my cooking destruction but it never really works – at home I wash all the dishes so I feel the pain. I feel like I am always dealing with a full sink

Okay back to this Macaroni and Cheese – I saw this recipe on my Facebook newsfeed and decided to try it – loved it 🙂 I made a couple of changes – if you want to take a look at the original recipe it will be linked at the bottom of the recipe post ( like always 🙂 )

To make this dish gluten free make sure to use gluten free macaroni pasta ( Barilla makes great gluten free pasta )

This dish was enough for 3 VERY hungry people 🙂

I know the Nutmeg is a little weird but it works so perfectly with the cheese and pasta

I added a little extra cheese on the top — because you never can have enough cheese c’mon

Easy Homemade Macaroni and Cheese Recipe



  • 2 Cups of Dry Macaroni
  • 2 Cups of Lowfat Milk
  • 1 Tablespoon of Butter
  • Pinch of Nutmeg
  • ¼ teaspoon of mustard, powder
  • 1 teaspoon of salt
  • 2 Cups of Cheddar Cheese


  1. Wash the dry pasta and place in a medium size pot with the milk, salt, butter, mustard, and nutmeg
  2. Heat over medium heat - keep stirring - it takes about 10 minutes - you do not want your milk to burn -- once almost all the liquid is gone taste the pasta if it needs more liquid add a bit more milk
  3. Stir in the cheese over the heat
  4. Once the cheese is melted. Taste -- it might need some pepper
  5. Enjoy!
