This mac and cheese recipe is basically the opposite of a healthy, low-calorie dinner. But, this warm, creamy, cheesy, pasta dish is perfect after a long day spent outside in the winter weather. The key to the creamy texture is the combination of cheddar and colby cheeses. Recipes that use only cheddar usually result in a grainy sauce, the addition of colby ensures that the sauce is incredibly smooth. I know purists would disagree with my addition of the onion, but I like having onion in nearly everything. Feel free to leave it out if you disagree! I enjoyed mixing the mac and cheese with some steamed broccoli so I could kid myself into thinking it was a little healthier, I’m sure it would be good with other vegetables too.
If you want to make the recipe ahead of time it can be kept in the fridge for 2 days before cooking.
