Copycat Boston Market Macaroni & Cheese

I am a huge fan of Boston Markets macaroni and cheese. It’s just so cheesy and I love spiral pasta! I’ll admit, I sometimes buy the frozen Boston Market meals but they are so expensive. I found it is so much cheaper to prepare this macaroni and cheese recipe at home.

Macaroni & Cheese3 cup dry spiral shaped pasta – cooked al dente, drained
2/3 cup Milk
1 lb Velveeta cheese – cubed small
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/2 teaspoon ground turmeric
Salt and pepper to taste

In a double boiler over gently simmering water, add milk, cheese, mustard powder, turmeric, salt and pepper in that order. Stir with whisk until melted and smooth. Mix pasta into hot cheese mixture until combined.

6 servings

  1. It’s a processed cheese that has too many chemicals for my taste. Not healthy at all.

  2. Marvin Lomax (Jan 12, 2008) states that “only an idiot would not know what veleeta cheese is.” I must be an idiot, as I have never heard of veleeta cheese; is it similar to Velveeta cheese?

  3. This wasn’t very good. It’s different, but that’s the only somewhat positive thing I can say about it.

  4. Were can you buy it frozen besides shoprite because i looked there and they did not have it!??????? please rite back soon!!!

  5. Angell, our WalMart has it frozen by the other meals like Healthy Choice and Kids Cuisine.

  6. I’ve got 2 kids who love macaroni cheese, I quite like it myself.

    This will go down a treat in our house, think I’ll give this recipe a go next week!

    Thanks :-)

  7. as an american ex-pat I can say that Velveeta cheese is a brand which is only found in the U.S so if you do not live in the U.S you wouldn’t know what it is … open your mind a little to a world out side the USA

  8. FYI

    I am Canadian from Canada ( one of those places outside the USA).
    There is velveeta cheese in every grocery store you go in. The price is higher but if the mac & cheese is that good it would be worth it.

  9. to Paula At Only Cookware: Velveeta Cheese is an old ”staple” Been around for years and years. A lot of times you can find it NEAR the frozen section in the grocery store (but not IN the frozen section)…..in a long yellow box….comes in either a 2 lb or 1 lb box. At least I have never seen it in the frozen section. If you can’t find it, ask one of the employees. It’s also a good dip–1 lb box melted, mixed with a can of Ro*Tel (diced tomatoes & green chilies) and served with chips. yumm!—-AND who cares if it’s not healthy. Once in a while won’t hurt ya’. :)

  10. I have not seen or heard of the cheese mentioned either but then I am not from the USA. This is probably seen by a lot more people outside of the USA. Pardon the rest of us for being “idiots”

  11. Can’t find Velveeta here in Costa Rica [sigh] so have to substitute – can suggestions???

  12. you can substitute Cheez Whiz for Velveeta cheese in a pinch.
