September Skillet Meals ~ Confetti Mac & Cheese

I have always been intimidated by homemade mac and cheese. However, since I am learning, I had to try it..Scanning Pinterest the other day I found my experiment! She used boxed mac and cheese but creamy white sauce and shells was so yummy looking.

Here is what I did.. Hubby cooked 3# of small shells. I made the sauce, I took about 1/2 cup butter and melted it down and mixed 6 tbsp of flour mixed well. I boiled  2 cans of condensed milk with 2 cans of water and mixed with the butter.. I added in 6 cups of shredded sharp cheddar and stirred till melted and poured over the pasta.. add veggies.. This made quite a bit, but it was so yummy!!

 Estimated meal cost $10

*Note: I am not a talented cook, nor do I really enjoy it. I tend to prepare the same mundane meals. So I decided for the month of September, I am making a new to me, meal each day. These meals are no cook or stove top meals, they are low cost and healthy. Meals vary and I hope to do some breakfast meals as well. I do not follow recipes well and I usually estimate quantities. The recipes posted are to feed my family of 11, adjust accordingly.. Click here to see the rest of the posts.
