3 Ingredient Mac and Cheese

Just three ingredients and 20 minutes, and this delicious Macaroni and Cheese is ready to be served!
Melissa's Cuisine: 3 Ingredient Mac and Cheese
If you have a toddler, or have ever had one, then you probably know what a challenge it can be to please them at meal time.  One day they love something and the next day they won't even look at it.  Summer is no different!  She's not exactly a picky eater, but she doesn't eat a variety of foods.  She has her foods that she loves and she eats them well.  But she'll let you know if she doesn't like something.  Usually by throwing it on the floor.  Thankfully we have a dog! ;)

One thing Summer is guaranteed to always like is macaroni and cheese! It's a great go-to for when we are out for dinner because she loves it!  In fact, when we went to the grocery store to get the elbow macaroni noodles, I told Summer we were getting macaroni, and she proceeded to chant "roni, roni, roni!" as we walked down the aisles.

For this month's Secret Recipe Club, I was assigned to Margaret's blog, Tea and Scones. I spent a lot of time looking through her recipes and trying to find the perfect one to make.  There were so many to choose from and so many scone recipes that looked amazing (and I will be making!)  But when I saw this 3 Ingredient Macaroni and Cheese, I knew I had found the recipe to make!

I decided to double the recipe so it would use a whole box of noodles, a block of cheese, and a pint of half and half.  I also was planning to bring this dish to a potluck so I wanted to have enough (and actually had leftovers, so Summer was thrilled!)  I loved how easily this dish came together.  No need to make a roux or anything!  Just one pan to make the pasta in.  (I used a separate pan for pictures and transportation, but that would typically be unnecessary).

We all loved this macaroni!  It's perfectly cheesy and absolutely delicious.  It will be my go-to meal for a quick dish that makes everyone happy.  And I'll probably try experimenting with different cheeses for new flavors too :)
