How to make mac and cheese with Multo™ by CookingPal®?

1. Cook macaroni.

Add macaroni noodles into the simmering basket and cook until done. This will make draining the noodles much easier as well.

2. Make the cheese sauce.

Add the various cheeses to the bowl and mix with the other ingredients until fully incorporated.

3. Combine the sauce and cooked macaroni.

It’s as simple as that - and your dish is ready!

Cooking tips and tricks

  • Choose your pasta noodles carefully as the shapes with nooks and crannies will hold onto the cheese sauce better. Elbow macaroni is the pasta called for in this recipe, but other types that work nicely are fusilli, farfalle, and conchiglie.
  • Watch the cooking time of the pasta carefully. The term al dente means “to the tooth”, meaning the pasta will slightly stick to your tooth when done. Overcooking the pasta will result in mushy noodles, and you want to make sure the noodles hold their shape so to absorb the cheese sauce nicely.

What are the variations of the mac and cheese?

  • Add different types of cheese for more intense flavors and added cheesiness. A simple upgrade from mild to sharp cheddar will give this dish an extra bite, but other cheeses such as brie, gouda, Gruyère, and goat cheese also make nice additions. You can even substitute milk with the same amount of cream cheese!
  • Add toasted breadcrumbs or crushed crackers on top of your mac and cheese. Not only does this make your dish look pretty, but it brings a nice crusty texture to the dish!

How to store mac and cheese?

  • Store leftovers of this homemade mac and cheese in an airtight container and keep in the refrigerator for 3 to 5 days. TIP: Mac and cheese thickens as it cools, so you may need to add 1-2 tbsp of milk when reheating to restore its original creaminess.
