Tonight I made macaroni, with Velveeta sauce. Now I’m the type of girl who likes to make my own cheese sauce, but as of late I’ve been curdling mine (due to lazyness/distraction) and I wanted something quick and easy for dinner.
I’m shameful to admit, but it was pretty good. Not great, kind of bland but not to anyone’s fault but my own, as I could have added ANYTHING to make it taste better. But I strictly followed the recipe on the inside of the packet.
Le Recipe is as follows:
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
1/4 cup milk
1 250g packet of The Amazing Pretendo Cheese “product”
2 cups cooked pasta
1/4 cup breadcrumbs
1/4 cup Parmesan cheese (I used real cheddar instead as I had nones parmaseans)
Basically just make yerself a roux with the flour and butter, and add the milk. Bring it to a boil and then add the velveeta, wisk to combine, and you have yourself a cheese sauce!
Add the pasta and put in a casserole dish, then add the cheese then bread crumbs and bake until crispy. (I’d like to mention that I added more than the 2 cups of pasta, as it makes way more sauce than you’ll need for 2 cups, and I wasn’t too interested in having gelatinous cheese soup.)
Now I also didn’t bake it as recommended via the cardboard packet, because cooked pasta + sauce + more cooking = overcooked nasty pasta. So I just broiled it until the cheese was melted and the breadcrumbs browned.
I’d probably make it again if I was super lazy or too drunk to think. Michael sure seemed to love it, as it’s all GONE.
