It's a lightning-quick stovetop version of mac and cheese, made with spaghetti; but you can use whatever noodle you'd like. So put some water to boil, because our One Pot Mac and Cheese is creamy, cheesy, and pretty perfect!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups (1 quart) milk
  • 6 cups (24 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and set aside in colander.
     
  2. In the same pot, melt butter over medium heat then stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened, stirring frequently. Add cheese, dry mustard, salt, and pepper and stir for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
     
  3. Add spaghetti and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through, stirring constantly. Serve immediately.
