Easy Boxed Mac n Peas

My Mom always did this when I was growing up and now its just a habit! I know I'm not the only one.

For this recipe I used Trader Joe's Shells & White Cheddar + some fresh “unexpected cheddar” - always always buy blocks of cheese & shred them yourself. Bags of shredded cheese do not melt the same !

You'll need

  • 1 box of mac n cheese - use one you like!

  • 1/2 cup freshly shredded cheddar - I like white cheddar

  • 1 tablespoon butter

  • 1/4 cup milk (2% or whole)

  • 1/3 cup frozen peas


  1. Make the boxed mac n cheese according to package instructions - I always use less water than they tell you to.

  2. After draining, return the pot to low heat. Add in the packet of cheese it comes with + milk, butter, and real cheese - stir until the cheese is melted in.

  3. Add the frozen peas, stir. Add salt and pepper to taste and enjoy!
