Can creamy, cheesy stovetop mac and cheese perfection be achieved with just four ingredients? You bet your buttons—and this easy macaroni and cheese recipe proves it.


1 lb Dried elbow macaroni
1 cup Heavy cream
6 oz Cheddar cheese, shredded (roughly 2 cups)
3/4 cup Good quality parmesan cheese, shredded
1/2 tsp Salt, optional
1/2 tsp Pepper, optional
Sriracha sauce, optional


In a large pot bring 4 quarts of water to a boil. Season water with 2 tsp salt. Cook pasta in boiling water according to package instructions.
While pasta is cooking, heat cream in a heavy saucepan or cast iron skillet over medium heat until cream begins to bubble. Add in the cheeses along with ½ tsp salt and ½ tsp pepper. Stir cheese sauce until bubbly and the cheese has melted, 5-7 minutes stirring often.
Once the noodles are cooked, add drained pasta to the cheese sauce and stir until combined.
If desired, top with a heavy dose of sriracha sauce. Enjoy!
