A creamy and comforting one pot white cheddar mac and cheese


  • 1 lb dry macaroni noodles – or basically any pasta
  • 2 cups vegetable broth
  • 2 cups water
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3 cups shredded sharp white cheddar cheese – I used extra sharp white cheddar


  1. Add macaroni, vegetable broth, water, and salt to a large pot and mix thoroughly
  2. Heat over high heat until the liquid boils – stirring occasionally
  3. Once boiling, reduce the heat to medium-low and cover the pot with a lid
  4. Simmer for 6 minutes stirring occasionally
  5. After 6 minutes the pasta should be tender and almost completely cooked – depending on the noodle size that you select your pasta may cook faster or slower so it is good to check the noodles for doneness as you cook
  6. Once the noodles are cooked to the point of just slightly al dente, turn off the heat
  7. Leave the pot on the stove with the heat off and pour in the milk and shredded cheddar cheese
  8. Mix constantly until the cheese has melted completely
  9. Take the pot off the stove and serve! I served it with fresh cracked black pepper on top
