Stovetop Macaroni & Cheese

I love to try new macaroni and cheese recipes - my kids are, thankfully, very easy going with all the variations. What I love about this particular recipe is that it includes yogurt and sweet peas. It is reminiscent of tuna noodle casserole a bit :) And there are only 5 ingredients!

Stovetop Macaroni & Cheese - five ingredients (including yogurt!) to a great, homemade mac & cheese recipe.

What you need:
  • 8 oz. elbow macaroni
  • 8 oz. mix of American and Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup yogurt
  • Salt and pepper
  • 1 1/2 cup frozen peas
  1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Throw in peas the last 5 minutes of cooking time. Reserve 1 cup pasta water. Drain and return to pot.
  2. Add 1/4 cup pasta water, yogurt, and 1/3 cup cheeses to the pasta.
  3. Stir in the rest of the cheeses and add water to thin until desired consistency is reached.
