Easy homemade Macaroni and Cheese

I am always on Pinterest looking for new recipes, crafts, decoration ideas, etc...  Each week, before I go grocery shopping, I will go into my dinner pin board and see what I want to make that specific week.  When I saw this recipe for homemade Macaroni and Cheese, I knew I HAD to try it! The recipe I followed was posted on Revolutionary Mac & Cheesecake's blog (however, I believe she got it somewhere else).

I am always looking for new ways to make staple foods completely from scratch! This was definitely a great find.  Although, I will tell you right now, if you want it to taste like that lovely box, you will be wildly disappointed.  However, this is a FANTASTIC dinner substitute.  It's very filling!

OH! and did I mention this is a very easy recipe!

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese 

2 cups of shell pasta 
2 cups of milk (2% or whole) 
1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese 
1 spoonful of dijon mustard (If you want) 

Step 1: Take 2 cups of shell pasta and cover it with 2 cups of high fat milk.  (I used Whole milk, but you can also use 2% milk.) 
NOTE: Make sure that you stir frequently as it gets hotter, you don't want the milk to burn. 

Step 2: You will know milk and pasta are ready when it becomes very creamy (See above: this takes about 20 mintues) 

Step 3: Put 1 cup of freshly shredded cheddar cheese and cover

Step 4: Mix thoroughly once melted. You can also add about a small spoonful of dijon mustard if you want. Although I don't feel it's absolutely necessary.

Step 5: Serve immediately! (If this sits for too long the cheese won't be nice and creamy.) 
And as always, Enjoy! We enjoyed this meal alongside some Amazing homemade buttermilk biscuits
