Robin’s 10 minute Stove Top Mac & Cheese

Before my friend Elizabeth Ries went on maternity leave with baby Heathcliff, she and Robin Asbell created an easy and tasty dinner recipe for 10 minute Mac and Cheese that Robin shared on Twin Cities Live that you can make instead of that Nuclear orange powdered boxed Mac and Cheese.

Give it a try.

Makes 4 cups

1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 1/2 cups water
1/4 cup minced onion
1/2 teaspoon salt
8 ounces macaroni, 2 cups
1/2 cup frozen peas
4 ounces sharp cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese

Place milk, water, and onion in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Bring to a full boil, then stir in the macaroni. Stir and bring to a boil, then reduce to keep at a simmer. Stir frequently for 10 minutes. Start testing the pasta. When just al dente, stir in the peas, and when they are heated through, stir in the cheese and keep stirring until melted and creamy. Serve hot.
