This Stovetop Alfredo Mac & Cheese is my "go-to" side dish. I make it all time, and I can't believe I've never shared the recipe on the blog. Chicken Legs absolutely LOVES this pasta! I love how quick and easy it is to make! I usually serve this with grilled steaks, grilled or baked chicken, and pork chops. It really goes with everything!
This literally only takes about 10 minutes from start to finish! This is best served immediately. I like to boil the pasta when we start the main dish and then throw together the sauce when we are getting ready to fix our plates.
Stovetop Alfredo Mac & Cheese
- 12-oz dry elbow macaroni
- 1 (15-oz) jar Alfredo sauce
- 1-1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
- 1/4 tsp garlic powder
- 3 Tbsp grated parmesan cheese
Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
In a large saucepan, combine Alfredo sauce, cheddar cheese and garlic powder. Cook over medium heat until cheese melts. Stir in cooked pasta. Add grated parmesan cheese. (If sauce it too thick, add a little bit of water or milk to thin the sauce out.)
