Wisconsin Mac & Cheese Copycat

Love the Noddles and Company Wisconsin Mac & Cheese? Well now you can make it at home! Simple, easy ingredients make the best easy dinners! Plus, I make my noodles in my Instant Pot for quick clean up! This recipe is always a hit at my house. The perfect back to school 30 minute meal! Make it with me!

I like to use my Instant Pot to cook my pasta! No more boiling over, no more mess, and no more extra clean up! You simply place the uncooked noodles, water, and salt in the pot, seal the lid, and set the timer for 5 minutes! When it is finished, quick release the pressure, drain the excess liquid, and enjoy! So quick and easy! Another reason why I LOVE my Instant Pot!

Wisconsin Mac & Cheese
Yields 6 Servings

1 pound uncooked elbow macaroni
1/4 cup unsalted butter
1/4 cup flour
2 cups whole milk
2 cups cheddar cheese, grated
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon paprika
2 cups extra shredded cheese for topping

Cook elbow macaroni in salted water until al dente. (I cook mine in the Instant Pot. Place noodles and 3 cups water in the Instant Pot. Manually set the timer to 5 minutes, seal, and cook. When finished, drain excess water and top with sauce.)

In a medium sized pot, add butter and flour and whisk together over medium heat to form a roux. Cook until the flour reaches a light tan color.

Next, slowly add the whole milk in a steady stream, whisking constantly to avoid lumps.

Reduce heat to low and cook the mixture until it is steaming hot. Remove from heat and stir in the grated cheese, and season with salt and pepper.

Stir cooked macaroni in to cheese sauce and garnish with extra grated cheese. Enjoy!
