Easy Mac.

24 06 2010

I love my rice cooker! I use it at least once a week. It is the fastest, easiest, and best way to prepare rice, couscous and even homemade mac n’ cheese! For the milk, you can use heavy cream if you are feeling luxurious, skim milk or even soy milk. I’ve tried all three. The cheeses are versatile as well. We’ve used cheddar only, cheddar and goat cheese, cheddar and mozzarella…anything goes!

Rice Cooker Mac N’ Cheese

2 C.  whole wheat penne pasta (or pasta of your choice)

1 1/4 C. milk

1 C. water or broth

1 C. shredded cheddar

1/2 C. shredded mozzarella

2 T. butter or margarine

1/2 t. salt

1/4 t. pepper

pinch of cayenne (optional)

Dump pasta and water (or broth) and milk (or cream) into rice cooker. Cook. When finished cooking add remaining ingredients. Stir well. You may need to add additional water or milk. Serve to happy little kids. Serves 2 hungry adults or 1 adult and 3-4 little bumpkins.
