The BEST Baked Macaroni & Cheese

This 4-Cheese Mac & Cheese is so creamy and delicious! I could make a meal out of this yummy pasta! Pasta and butter tossed with heavy cream, cream cheese, Velveeta, Jack & Cheddar cheese. We LOVED this mac & cheese! We ate this with some grilled chicken for lunch and leftover for dinner. SO good! You could easily turn this into a main dish by adding some diced ham and/or broccoli to the casserole. Equally delicious!

How To Make 4-Cheese Mac & Cheese

This 4-Cheese Mac & Cheese is really easy to make. The best part about this recipe is there is no roux or white sauce to make. Simply boil the pasta and drain. Place the hot pasta in a large bowl, add some butter and stir until it melts. Add the cheeses, egg, and heavy cream. Season with seasoned salt and pepper. Place in a baking dish and bake. So easy!

Can 4-Cheese Mac & Cheese Be Frozen?

Yes! You can make this ahead of time and freeze it baked or unbaked for later. To bake this 4-Cheese Mac & Cheese casserole after freezing, thaw completely and bake as directed below. I usually take the casserole out of the freezer the day before baking and let it thaw in the refrigerator.

To reheat this mac & cheese after freezing, thaw and pop in the microwave or cover with foil and heat in the oven for about 30 minutes.
