I was having one of those moments when I didn't know what to cook and I needed to go to the store. I looked in my kitchen trying to come up with something that wouldn't require going out. I decided to try some quick macaroni and cheese. We usually eat the box variety, as my husband prefers it, but my youngest doesn't really like it. I thought trying homemade macaroni and cheese might be more appealing and we should give it a try.
I know most macaroni and cheese recipes are baked but I was looking for something a little quicker. I found this Rachel Ray recipe for a quick stove top version. I had the ingredients on hand. We don't usually have half and half but I had it left over from when we made our Baggie Ice Cream. I imagine you could also use milk but would just need to slightly adjust the milk. I will try that the next time I make it. I want to find a good recipe for baked macaroni and cheese but this one is a really good quick fix for your cheesy macaroni craving!
