the new lunch box favorite

1 Feb

i was up at six this morning making macaroni and cheese. ugh! i boil the noodles the night before that way all i have to do in the morning is make the cheese sauce. this is the container i put his hot lunches in. i put boiling water in it for 15 minutes before i put the food in. he tells me that the food is still very warm at lunch (11:10).

lunch box mac n cheese

1 pkg. rice macaroni
2 cups grated sharp cheddar
2 cups grated monterey jack
2-2 1/2 cups milk
2 tbs corn starch
3-4 sliced hotdogs

cook macaroni according to package directions. if you’re making the night before refrigerate noodles.
preheat 350°
mix milk and cornstarch in heavy bottom pan. heat. add cheese and stir constantly until melted and slightly thickened. put noodles in 2 qt. dish. add hotdogs. pour cheese sauce over mix and bake 15-20 mins. until thick and bubbly.
we like to sprinkle cayenne pepper over the top when served.
