One Pot Macaroni and Cheese by Consumer Reports
20 mins (prep 5, cooking 15)
10 ingredients
2 servings
Years and years ago, CR reviewed boxed M&C products and came to the conclusion that this recipe was much less expensive and easy. I have used it exclusively since the 70's, shared it with friends, and can tell you it is the best I have ever had. Of course, the prices are from about 30 years ago :)
