Classic Mac & Cheese

Jump to recipe

Who doesn’t love mac & cheese? I have a lot of mac & cheese recipes, but this is the first classic, or traditional, mac & cheese. I figure right before the holidays is a great time to share this one. And also, you all confirmed with me not too long ago that there are never enough mac & cheese recipes.

Here’s a look at the 5 simple ingredients you need for this one. I decided to swap out the fat free milk pictured here for the Fairlife Fat Free Milk to help boost the protein up some. If you don’t track your macro nutrients, or don’t have Fairlife at your local grocery store, it’s only a difference of 1 gram of protein per serving in this one.

Cavatappi is out favorite pasta noodle in our home. This Private Selection brand is from Albertsons. I’ve also find it at my local target and in the bins at WINCO. Use whatever pasta you like or have on hand. Same goes for the cheese.

As always, I hope you enjoy this recipe when you make it in your own home. Tag me on Instagram if you’re into that! I absolutely love seeing you guys making my recipes and sharing, it means a lot. Thank you! Enjoy this one and have a wonderful Thanksgiving.

      Hi Audra, I’ve never made this in the Instant Pot so I can’t provide guidance on that. Sorry!
