This was the best traditional baked mac & cheese we’ve ever made.  It was SO simple and SOOO delicious!  The best part about this mac & cheese is that you don’t have to boil the noodles!  Just mix everything together, pour it into a pan and bake it.  It is easier than boxed mac and cheese.  I think even Chicken Leg’s could make this!  Give it a try this weekend!  It would be a great addition to your 4th of July menu.

No-Boil Macaroni and Cheese Recipe – macaroni, milk, chicken broth, cheese, cream cheese, spices and flour – everything bakes in the same pan, even the pasta. No need to precook anything. So simple and SOO delicious! Ready in 30 minutes!

Ingredients:

  • 1 (16- oz) pkg elbow macaroni
  • 1 cup milk (I used 1%)
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 4 cups shredded cheese – I used a cheddar jack blend
  • 1 (8-oz ) package softened cream cheese, cubed (I used light)
  • 2 tsp onion salt
  • 1 tsp dry mustard
  • fresh ground pepper
  • ½ cup flour

Instructions:

  • Preheat oven to 375ºF. Lightly spray a 9×13-inch pan with cooking spray.
  • In a large bowl, stir together the macaroni, milk and chicken broth. Add the remaining ingredients and mix together using a large wooden spoon. Pour into a casserole dish. *Make sure all the pasta is covered. It won’t cook if it isn’t in the liquid mixture. I just pressed the noodles down in the pan until they were all covered.*
  • Bake uncovered for 30-40 minutes, or until pasta is fully cooked.
  • Turn oven broiler on for the last two minutes of cooking time to brown up the top part of the mac and cheese. Allow to cool slightly before serving.

  1. I am always trying to find a mac and cheese recipe that I love. I'm extremely picky with mac and cheese. I made this recipe in the crockpot and it turned out amazing. The chicken broth and cream cheese make a huge difference. I will use this recip for mac and cheese from now on.

  2. Pretty good, but a little dry. Would probably leave out the flour the next time I try it. I like the Steakhouse Mac & Cheese recipe better, though.

  3. Made this tonight and it was a huge hit. I used turkey broth I made and froze at Christmas. To satisfy my "must have meat" husband I cooked, drained and added a pound of mild sausage. Perhaps because of the meat's bulk, the liquid was short of covering so I topped it off with almond milk until the pasta was covered. Did not measure but it was probably about 1/2 cup. Excellent!

  4. I have this in the oven right now. The liquid did not cover the noodles so I added almond milk ( which I had open in the fridge) until it did. Added a pound of ground sausage, cooked and drained, as my sweet husband does not think a meal is done until he has meat! Ha.
