Looking for an easy, delicious macaroni and cheese recipe? This simple one-pot mac and cheese recipe has just three ingredients and is ready in only about 10 minutes. Awesome, right? Happy National Mac and Cheese Day (but feel free to make this recipe any day)!

Cuisine: American
Prep Time: 0 minutes
Cook Time: 10 minutes
Total Time: 10 minutes

Servings: 4 to 6


  • 1 bag (12 ounces) elbow macaroni
  • 1 can (12 ounces) evaporated milk
  • 3 - 3 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, fontina, gruyere, white cheddar, mozzarella, etc. (use your favorite)

Here's how to make it: 

  1. Put the noodles into a large saucepan with just enough water to cover. Season with salt. Bring to a boil and continue to cook over high heat until almost all the water is evaporated and noodles are almost tender, about 6 to 7 minutes.
