Stovetop Velveeta Macaroni and Cheese Recipe

This recipe is another childhood favorite of mine. Boxed macaroni and cheese was something we never had in the pantry at our house. Instead, my Mom always made what we called "cheese spaghetti". I don't make this often, but when I do, it brings me right back to my childhood. I still love it as much now as I did then! It's just as quick as the stuff in the box and the flavor is so much better! Enjoy!

Stovetop Velveeta Macaroni and Cheese (Print Recipe)

What you need:
3 c. elbow noodles
10 oz Velveeta cheese, cut into small cubes
2 c. milk
salt and pepper

Cook noodles according to package directions. Meanwhile, start melting Velveeta in the milk over medium heat, stirring often. Add cooked noodles, salt and pepper and continue cooking until heated through and cheese is completely melted. Remove from heat and serve. Sauce will be thin, but it thickens up fast once it starts cooling down.

  1. I love velveeta mac and cheese! Have you ever tried to put your own spin on it - adding in meats or veggies?

    1. Me too!! We love adding broccoli, peas or ham!

  2. The only thing to serve Velveeta mac and cheese with is hot dogs, sliced lengthwise and smothered with ketchup...and french cut green beans.
