How Boxed Mac and Cheese Became a Pantry Stable

The first time I tried to make "Kraft Dinner" I was surprised it required the addition of milk and butter. At that point, may as well make it from scratch (it's just mornay sauce and noodles).

Fortunately, the microwave version is actually instant. The powder version - not the sauce version - the sauce version is yellow chalk ooze.

Easy Mac is really good. Mornay sauce takes more time and effort than boxed macaroni and cheese and many people prefer the boxed kind.

Without trying this recipe, I worry that the pasta will be bland because it hasn't been cooked in salted water. If you cook pasta in unsalted water, it doesn't have flavour, and salting the sauce doesn't make up for it. The pasta is still bland.

Also, the topping looks horrible. I have been experimenting with baking the topping separately and adding it directly to the dish, and it's okay. But it's a bit gritty, and the topping in the video looks more so.

1. Cheese is salty enough to season the dish.

2. The topping is heavenly, give it a try, what do you have to lose?
