  • Carrefour Macaroni

  • Cheese (The majority uses Cheddar or Gouda kind of cheese)

  • Flour 

  • Butter

  • Sour cream or Greek yogurt

  • Flour 

  • Salt

  • Garlic powder


Step 1: Cook the macaroni

Cook the macaroni according to the package instructions. Be sure to add 1/4 to 1/2 tsp salt to the boiling water.

Step 2: Make the cheese sauce

This homemade mac and cheese sauce starts with a roux.t’s a mixture of fat (usually butter) and flour that is used to create thick sauces.Let it cook for about 60 seconds before moving on!After the roux has cooked for 60 seconds, add the milk and whisk the mixture really well.Add the sour cream or Greek yogurt and whisk again.Cook over medium heat whisking every 10-15 seconds until the sauce starts to thicken.Do NOT let this mixture boil! If you do you may end up with a mac and cheese sauce that is too thick.Once the sauce has thickened enough to stick to a spatula, turn the heat to low. Then it’s time for the next step…

Step 3: Add the cheese & Whisk until smooth

Add the cheese and whisk until the sauce is smooth and all the cheese is melted. This will take 1-2 minutes over low heat! At this point it is important to taste the homemade mac and cheese sauce and adjust the salt/garlic according to your tastes! 

Step 4: Combine the cheese sauce & Cooked Carrefour Macaroni

Once the cheese sauce is silky smooth, turn off the heat, add the cooked pasta and stir to combine. The sauce will thicken as it cools, so keep that in mind!

The yummy and easy Mac & Cheese is ready o serve.. enjoy!
