Ingredients

  • 1 16 oz shells noodles
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 can cream of cheddar soup
  • 1 8oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Bring a large pot to boil and add salt. Add pasta and follow box instructions. 
  • Heat up another pan, melt butter, then add cream of cheddar soup and whisk until warmed through. This should take about one minute. Add shredded cheese and whisky until sticky and thoroughly combined. You'll know it's done once it looks like a cream sauce with no visible bits of cheddar cheese. Taste the cheese sauce and decide how much salt and pepper it needs. This is optional because the cream of cheddar cheese soup itself is quite salty. 
  • Drain pasta, transfer to large mixing bowl. Pour cheese sauce over top and stir until fully combined. Serve immediately. 

Notes

This can be reheated by adding a tad bit of milk or half and half to cream it back up by heating it up on the stove or microwave.
