Cheesy Goodness from Gooseberry Patch, Recipe #2

There is nothing more comforting than a giant bowl of macaroni and cheese. I have loved mac and cheese since I was little and I still do! A nice bowl of cheesy goodness can make a really bad day seem a bit brighter!

When I was searching for recipes to use for my In the Kitchen with Gooseberry Patch project, a partnership with the Real Farmwives of America, this recipe caught my eye.  I’m cooking from 101 Homestyle Favorites, and this is a new favorite!

The recipe is as follows:

1/4c flour
1/8t pepper
2 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. grated Parmesan cheese
1/2 c. shredded Cheddar cheese
3/4 c. cubed Velveeta
1/4 c. cream cheese
8 ounce package of pasta, cooked

Start by combining the flour and pepper in a small saucepan.  Whisk in milk and bring to a boil, cooking for one minute and stirring constantly.  Except when you have to take a picture!

Reduce the heat and add the cheese and stir until melted.

Boil your pasta

And then mix the cheese mixture and pasta together.  Put into a greased 9×9 pan.  I actually made a bit more pasta and used a 9×13 pan.  Bake uncovered at 350 degrees for 30 minutes.  Oh was this good!

  1. One of my favorite dishes but one I don’t make much because the recipes I found required making a rue first and then adding milk and cheese. This looks much easier, thanks for posting! 🙂
