Baked mac and cheese. It’s nearly the universal comfort food, and there are SO many variations! It all starts with pasta, cooked about a minute shy of al dente. You don’t want to cook it all the way to al dente, since it will be baking a bit in the oven and will finish cooking there. You can use any shape you’d like. We kept it original here with the classic elbow shape, but we’ve done rotini, farfalle, cavatappi, etc. Pick the shape you and your family love the most!
