Easy Homemade Macaroni & Cheese

My hubby LOVES macaroni & cheese.  Really I think he is just a big kid at heart!  We are spoiled rotten in the fact that we get to have lunch together almost every day!  Macaroni & cheese is probably his most requested meal.  We do occasionally eat boxed mac & cheese but I try to make this simple recipe instead.   There are no preservatives and I can tweak the ingredients to make them even healthier.  You actually cook the macaroni in a rice cooker!  It is beyond easy and contains only 4 ingredients.  😉

In a rice cooker combine:

  • 1 cup Chicken Broth (I use 1 cup water and 2 t. chicken broth powder)
  • 1 c. uncooked pasta.  It doesn’t even have to be macaroni!

Turn on the rice cooker and allow this to cook.  It usually takes my rice cooker about 20 minutes which is the perfect amount of time for lunch preparations.  🙂  (Be careful not to leave the cooked macaroni sitting for a long time or it might burn on the bottom.)

After the macaroni is cooked add 1/4 cup milk and 1 cup shredded cheese.  Allow it to sit for about 5 minutes and serve.  I like to place the lid back on so that the cheese can melt quickly.  Enjoy!

Yum!

Yum!
