she’s also far too busy to be bothered with things as trivial as eating. so, when my parents order takeout from outback, she usually ends up with the kids mac-a-roo n’cheese, eats two bites, proclaims that she’s full & runs off in a whirlwind. which is how i, the older sister who rather enjoys eating, have come to taste this pasta.
right place, right time, people.
& while i typically like to support local restaurants, opposed to the chains, & stay away from eating too many processed foods…there’s no denying that this is good, creamy & comforting.
the best part? it’s insanely easy to make at home, so i don’t have to stake out my parents’ house, waiting for my sister to abandon her dinner.
1 lb penne pasta, or something similar
1 1/2-2 cups whipping cream
1 lb package velveeta cheese, cubed
1. bring a large pot of water to a boil. cook pasta to al dente, drain.
2. in the meantime, heat cream in a large saucepan, over medium heat. as it’s heating, add the cubed velveeta & stir constantly while the cheese melts & the sauce comes up to a bubble. if it’s too thick, or doesn’t taste creamy enough, use the remaining 1/2 cup cream to thin it. bring back up to a bubble, add the cooked pasta, toss to coat & serve.
