Classic Creamy Mac N Cheese

This easy mac n cheese is made from simple healthy ingredients and is always a winner with my kids!
Plus it only takes 15 minutes!
You may notice that I do not use macaroni pasta in my pictures – that’s because my local grocery store does not carry whole wheat macaroni.  So I use whole wheat rotini instead.  It works great either way.
Servings: 12
Time: 15 minutes
1 lb whole wheat pasta
1 12-oz can evaporated milk
1/2 C chicken broth
1 1/2 Tbsp butter
3 Tbsp flour
2 tsp dijon mustard
1/4 C parmesan cheese
Dash of pepper
8 oz sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
  1. Cook the pasta according to the directions on the package.  Once it is done cooking, drain and set aside, with a cover to keep it warm.
  2. Meanwhile, combine the milk and chicken broth in a microwave-safe bowl and heat for three minutes.
  3. As the milk and chicken broth are heating, melt the butter in a medium pot over medium heat.  Add the flour and combine well.
  4. Gradually whisk in the milk and chicken broth.  Bring to a boil, then reduce the low and simmer for 2-3 minutes, until the mixture is thick and bubbly.
  5. Add the mustard, parmesan, and pepper.  Stir to combine well.
  6. Turn off the heat, and add the cheddar.  Stir until the cheese is completely melted and incorporated.
  7. Combine sauce with the pasta, and serve hot.
