All you need for this recipe for mac and cheese casserole is 12 oz macaroni noodles, 1 cup water, 1/4 cup unsalted butter – melted, and 3 tbsp cornstarch. Also you will need 1.5 cups milk, 1 cup heavy cream, 1 tsp paprika, 1 tsp onion powder, and 1/2 tsp mustard powder. I also use 1/2 tbsp salt, 2 tsp black pepper, 4 cups shredded cheddar, and ½ cup fresh parmesan cheese for this delicious dish. 

You will love this pasta bake dish.

Macaroni noodles are the best little noodles. This dry pasta shaped like narrow tubes and usually made with durum wheat, cut in short lengths, and curved like an elbow. That’s why these noodles are often referred to as elbow macaroni. Machines can make macaroni shapes, but like most pasta, macaroni is usually made commercially by large-scale extrusion.

This recipe for mac and cheese casserole is so simple to make. Start by preheating your oven to 350 degrees F before greasing a standard casserole dish. Melt the butter then combine it with the dry elbow noodles in the casserole dish and stir it around until all the noodles are coated. Stir in all the spices and the cornstarch before slowly adding in all the wet ingredients one at a time until evenly combined. Lastly stir in the cheddar evenly before making a fresh layer of Parmesan cheese on top.

Bake the pasta for 25 minutes.
