"Baked" Macaroni & Cheese

To make this yummy homemade baked macaroni and cheese you will need: a large bag of macaroni noodles, a stick of butter, 32 oz shredded cheese (i like a lot!), about three cups of milk, pepper to taste (I usually put about 2 Tbsp).  Cook the noodles in boiling water until just soft (don't overcook because we'll be putting the dish in the microwave and the noodles will cook more there).  In a large bowl, throw in the drained noodles, butter, milk, cheese and pepper.  Then put into microwaveable pot and top with cheese (I bought the Emeril 5-quart casserole dish just for this meal!).  You can refrigerate now and reheat in microwave for 15-25 minutes when you are ready to eat, or just throw it in the microwave right away and eat.  Don't you just love making food ahead of time?!  This will feed a lot of people or what I do is feed my fam, then put the leftovers in one-person meal sized Tupperware and have it for lunches later in the week--it reheats super well.  This is one of my most favorite meals so I hope you enjoy!


  1. Wow, this sounds yummy! Love your cute little blog.....the background is adorable!

  2. Melissa, I can't wait to try this. I like that it is microwaveable. Will be making "baked macaroni" more often now. Not good for my ever expanding belly, oh, but the taste-buds are ever willing :^)



Comments really let me know that I'm not just talking to myself here...Thank you!
