simple macaroni and cheese

Simple Baked Macaroni and Cheese


  • 5 cups elbow macaroni
  • 8 oz. Velvetta cheese
  • 4 oz. sharp shredded cheddar cheese (white or yellow)
  • 1 stick salted butter, divided in half
  • 4 cups whole milk
  • 1/2 cup breadcrumbs


  1. Cook the elbows in salted water until al dente. Drain and pour them in a large baking pan.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the milk in a large saucepan along with the butter over low heat. Once the butter is melted add the cheeses, stirring so it does not stick to the pot.
  3. Pour the melted cheese over the elbows and stir.
  4. Melt the other 1/2 stick of butter and add to 1/2 cup breadcrumbs, stir to combine.
  5. Spread over the macaroni and cheese and bake in a preheated 350° F oven for 45 minutes.
