Creamy American cheese, sharp cheddar, and smooth mozzarella come together in this Three Cheese Mac and Cheese. This ultimate comfort food dish is simple to make with fail-proof results. Perfect for a potluck or bbq.
In a large pot cook pasta according to directions to al dente, but reducing cooking time by 1 minute. Drain and return to pot.
Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
I mention cooking just shy of al dente in this recipe. Al dente describes pasta or rice that is cooked to be firm to the bite.
You want to use a 2 qt baking dish. The shape doesn't mater, but a 9x13 will work, or a round or oval 2 qt casserole dish.
In this recipe I used penne, but you can use the traditional elbow macaroni or even shell pasta.
