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!
1(16- oz)pkg elbow macaroni
1cupmilk(I used 1%)
4cupsshredded cheese - I used a cheddar jack blend
1(8-oz )package softened cream cheese, cubed (I used light)
fresh ground pepper
Preheat oven to 375ºF. Lightly spray a 9x13-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.
