Simplest Ever Mac ‘N’ Cheese with Peas

Our first content post! How exciting! As you’ll see, the format of our posts will be just like this: you’ll find the associated not-exactly-instructional-video at the top of the post, and right underneath you’ll find the recipe. Simple as that!

So here you go: the recipe for my mom’s cheesiest, fastest stovetop mac n cheese recipe.


  • 2 c elbow pasta
  • 1-2 c peas (frozen or fresh)
  • 2 T butter or margarine
  • 1.5 c grated cheddar cheese
  • 2/3 c grated parmesan cheese


  1. Bring a medium saucepan of lightly salted water to a boil.
  2. Add pasta. Return to a boil, cover partially, and cook about 7 minutes. Test pasta. It is done when not quite al dente.
  3. Add peas, and return to a boil.
  4. Drain the pasta and peas and return to the pot.
  5. Stir in the butter or margarine, then the cheeses, until all are melted and evenly coat the pasta.

  1. Oh, so that’s why you put salt in the water — to make it boil hotter! Thanks science nerd. Useful little bits of information like that really helps motivate me to actually follow recipes 😉
