Yumminess {Homemade Mac n Cheese]

I confess:  I've been in a funk since I dropped My Girl off at college last week. *Sigh*  Thank goodness my teaching year gears up again on Monday to help me snap the heck out of this!

For her "last supper" at home, My Girl requested this delish mac and cheese dish that came to me from my friend Harriet. Since you busy wives and moms are readying for back-to-school and football weekends (War Eagle! Go Dawgs!), I thought I'd share it with you. It's truly a crowd pleaser and is a regular request around here.

Harriet's Mac and Cheese

1 lb rotini pasta, cooked and drained
2 eggs, beaten
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
4 cups shredded cheddar (or colby jack-- our fave!) cheese-- 3 c in casserole, 1 c on top
2 1/2 cups milk
3-4 tbs butter

Coat 9x13 baking dish with butter.  Add beaten eggs and milk to cooked and drained pasta.  Mix well.  Add mozzarella cheese and 3 cups of cheddar (or colby jack) to pasta mixture and stir.  Pour into dish, cover, and bake at 350 for 45 minutes.  Uncover, add remaining 1 cup cheese on top, and bake additional 15 minutes until melted.

You're welcome! :)

Coming soon: my Mom Cave/home office update, new Willow House decor, and a new "I Can't Resist!"

Happy Cooking!


  1. One homey last supper!! It's been ages since I had this, yum!!! Can't imagine what it's like..., never had kids. Maybe there's an upside?!

  2. I had to laugh - when my eat with Dad, he always asks what I want to eat and he makes me mac and cheese which is kind of funny since we are I-talian! Best of luck to Your Girl at college. Oh, if I could do it over - I would've partied more and studied less. Don't tell her that though :)


Thanks for stopping in! I appreciate your thoughts...
