Ultimate Layered Mac & Cheese Casserole

This recipe for Ultimate Layered Mac and Cheese Casserole has everything you'd want out of a macaroni and cheese dinner. It's cheesy, buttery and topped with a Ritz cracker crumble for added texture. There's simply no beating an easy macaroni and cheese recipe like this.

Cooking Time45 min

Cooking MethodCasserole


  • 1 pound box elbow macaroni, cooked according to package directions
  • 1 stick margarine or butter
  • 1 package shredded sharp cheddar cheese

  • 1 package Ritz crackers


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F.

When I think of comfort food, I think of macaroni and cheese. It can be served as a main dish or as a side. If you have the time, homemade is much better than the boxed variety. For this recipe, I would use butter for a richer taste. I would also use reduced fat cheddar cheese and skim milk. Panko bread crumbs could be used for the topping instead of Ritz crackers. To ensure that the elbow macaroni is a good consistency in the casserole, it should be drained while it is still underdone. This is because the pasta will continue to cook in the oven.
