Ingredients
  • 16 oz box of elbow pasta
  • ½ cup of onion, diced
  • ½ cup celery, diced
  • ½ cup of carrots, shredded then diced
  • ½ stick of butter
  • ¼ cup of flour
  • 1 tsp of mustard powder
  • Salt and Pepper
  • 2½ cups of milk
  • 8 oz of cream cheese, cubed
  • 10 oz of shredded cheddar cheese
Instructions
  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions in a large stock pot. Set aside.
  2. Preheat oven to 350 Degrees and grease 2 baking dishes. Set aside.
  3. In a large skillet or large stock pot melt the butter and add the carrots, celery and onions. Cook for 5-8 minutes until the veggies become soft.
  4. Sprinkle the flour over the veggie mixture and stir to coat them well. Add the cubed cream cheese and pour in 2 cups of milk. Whisk the cheese and milk mixture constantly until the cream cheese starts to melt. Once it starts to thicken pour in the last half a cup of milk and continue whisking until it's completely melted, about another 10 min.
  5. Pour the cheese over the elbow macarroni and stir to combine.
  6. Pour half of the Mac N Cheese in one baking dish and the other half in the other baking dish.
  7. Bake one of them for 30 minutes. Let cool for 5 minutes and serve.
  8. Let the other baking dish come to room temperature and freeze for another night.
