Stovetop macaroni + Cheese


This macaroni and cheese is creamy, cheesy, and everything you need in a bowl of mac.

I want a macaroni and cheese that is easy to make, is creamy, cheesy, delicious, and did I say easy to make? 

I recently made this during a football game and we just left it on the stove for when we wanted to pick at something.

This stovetop mac and cheese is all of the above and is pretty versatile with what type of cheese you use! 

Let me know if you make it and be sure to tag me on instagram!
