Mmmm… Mac N Cheese


Doesn’t that look awesome?  Added bonus, it’s not much more involved than making a box variety – blech!

Here’s the recipe, enjoy!

The Frazzled Mama’s Mac N Cheese

Begin boiling water for the pasta of your choice (mine was rotini).

In a large sauce pan on medium heat, melt 3 tablespoons of butter.  Add 2 tablespoons of flour.  Stir constantly until the mixture thickens.  At some point around here, your water will be ready, and you can drop the pasta.

Then add, 1 1/2 cups heavy cream, 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/8 teaspoon paprika, and 1/2 pound processed cheese (aka Velveeta). Stir constantly until the sauce thickens but is smooth.

We interrupt your recipe for a very important suggestion.

If you don’t have one of these, get one.  It is a sauce spatula. (I don’t know if that’s what it’s really called but that’s what I call it:)


Don’t pay attention to the tiny missing piece of rubber.  I’m sure it didn’t come off in anything I made for you… These things are fabulous for gravy, sauces and rues.

We now return you to your regularly scheduled recipe.

Drain your pasta and return it to the pan you boiled it in, then add the rue and mix well.  Enjoy!

Sounds tasty! Only, rues should be roux. It’s French. :-)

Stick around, I misspell a lot of things, sometimes even on purpose ;)
