If mashed potatoes are my favorite comfort food side dish, it is safe to say that macaroni and cheese runs a close second. I’m not talking about the stuff in the blue box either, which in a pinch is okay but really doesn’t hold a candle to the real stuff. You know what I’m talking about, the stuff that your mama used to make. The down home cookin’ version of homemade mac n’ cheese. This is my take on it and it requires not one, not two but three different kinds of cheese: cheddar, Gruyere and Havarti. Each bite is pure cheesy noodle bliss.
Most homemade mac n’ cheese recipes, like this one I did about a year a go, call for some oven time. This recipe is a little different in that you can do all of it on the stove top which makes the whole process go a little faster. Including noodle cooking time it should take you about 30 minutes to prepare. Perfect for weeknight cooking.
