Easy Stove Top Mac 'n Cheese

This is a quick, easy, creamy, and cheesy macaroni and cheese recipe we enjoyed recently that I am saving for the "favorites" file! I really liked the blend of cheeses and simple seasonings to enhance them. The original recipe suggests cooking this in a rice cooker, but I don't have one and thought stove top would work great - and it did! Great side dish in a hurry to accompany just about any and everything.
Kent is a big mac 'n cheese fans, though he almost always prefers "Old Faithful" - the recipe his grandmother gave me and I've pretty much used every time I've made Mac 'N Cheese over the years, because it's the way he likes it. Thankfully this new recipe got the seal of approval so I get to hang onto this one and pull it out again someday - hopefully in the not so distant future. :) I'm sure some diced tomatoes or bacon mixed in, or sprinkled on top, would be really yummy if you like those types of add-ins as well. 
Easy Stove Top Mac 'n Cheese adapted from on AllRecipes

1 1/2 cups elbow macaroni
1 1/2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
1 cup milk
3/4 cup shredded Cheddar cheese
1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
1/4 cup grated Parmesan cheese
1/4 teaspoon paprika
salt and ground black pepper to taste

  1. Mix macaroni, broth, and milk together in a medium saucepan over medium heat and cook about 15 minutes, or until macaroni is tender yet firm to the bite (check frequently, stirring to prevent sticking - add additional broth / milk if the liquid is evaporating too quickly and reduce heat if necessary).
  2. Stir cheddar cheese, mozzarella cheese, Parmesan cheese, paprika, salt, and pepper into macaroni mixture until cheeses are melted. Taste test and adjust seasonings if necessary.


  1. Huge thanks for this recipe! It looks like haute cuisine, I ate a similar salad in one of the most expensive restaurants in Paris, and you revealed the secret of its preparation in your recipe, expressing your respect to you. Have you guessed what ingredients you need to use, or have you spied this information somewhere? :) I will definitely prepare the same for myself. I also wanted to point out that the cooking photos look incredibly professional! I think you should share them on Instagram and they will definitely get a lot of likes. I saw a couple of similar posts the other day and they mostly had at least 47 thousand of likes! I am sure their authors repeatly buy instagram likes to wind them up.
