Homemade Ranch Macaroni and Cheese

Who doesn’t like a traditional comfort food?

Macaroni and Cheese in all it’s cheesy, ooey, gooey goodness! Regular homemade macaroni and cheese is super yummy, but try adding a twist and see what happens.

My kids ate the whole pot minus a single scoopful which my son then took to school the next day with him for lunch. It was a huge hit and tastes great. We ate it as a side dish, even though there was certainly enough to make it the main course.

I make homemade mac & cheese about once a week. I can tell my family's getting bored with the same old recipe, so we'll be trying this one this week! Thank you for sharing this at just the right time.

My niece and nephewwould love this. If you added some ham or cooked chicken and broccoli it could be an all in one dinner.

@Maria and @Sheri - I hope you both like it. We love it.

I do have one tip though - my son said that when he reheated it, he added milk to make it creamier. So if you have any leftovers (almost not possible unless you make as much as I do - 5 kid and all) - use milk when you're ready to reheat it. He didn't know much he added -a couple of tablespoons - makes it moist and creamy again!
