Been working up a recipe for Mac and Cheese that uses raw macaroni. I am also using all the main ingredients in their pre-packaged size amounts, the idea is to be able to make this with just a pan and a spoon on the grill with no need to measure things out or boil the pasta.

It turned out really good! I would have never guessed that the pasta was not boiled first.

Here is a list of ingredients. I picked up everything at Walmart.

    1 12oz. bag of Skinner Large Elbows macaroni
    1 8oz. bag of Velveeta shreds
    1 8oz. bag of Kraft Triple Cheddar with a touch of Philadelphia
    1 8oz. bag of Cheddar cheese
    1 8oz. container of sour cream
    1 quart milk (4 cups)
     stick of melted butter
    1 tablespoon of Worcestershire sauce
    1 teaspoon chili powder
    1 teaspoon garlic powder
    1 teaspoon of mustard
    2 teaspoons of salt
    2 teaspoons fresh cracked pepper
    1 to 2 tablespoons of paprika

Basically, everything gets mixed in a pan except for one bag of cheddar cheese and the paprika.

I baked the whole thing on the grill at 350F for 50 minutes covered, and then added the leftover cheese and paprika on top and bake another 10 minutes uncovered.

There are more detailed instructions and pictures here on my blog.

I was really happy with the results, creamy, gooey, cheesy. Pasta had the right texture.

Best thing, I had only one pan to clean up!
