Album Review: Phillip Phillips - Behind the Light

Phillip Phillips - Behind the Light

  • A box of macaroni and cheese, must be one with the powdered cheese. Kraft will work, Target brand is great. Liquid cheese won't work.
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • 1 tbsp sour cream
  • 1 individually wrapped american cheese slice
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese
  • Sprinkling of pepper, nutmeg
  • Optional: heaping spoonful of portwine cheese
  • Optional: a protein, chunks of ham are always good, or a sliced hot-dog 
  • Optional: peas

This update on one of the top 10 laziest meals of all time will leave you satisfied, if only for about an hour. By substituting more milk, sour cream, and a variety of extra cheeses for the normal half-stick of butter you're creating the illusion of having a healthier meal while actually improving the flavor. The key is cooking it long enough after you've added the cheese and milk to let the sauce thicken up. You should end up with a tasty, creamy, sauce rich pasta meal that cost very little to make, required minimal mental energy and gives the appearance of being something greater than it actually is.

  1. Cook pasta as directed on box
  2. Meanwhile prepare milk, butter, sour cream and cheeses in a separate bowl or measuring glass
  3. Remove from heat, strain pasta and return to pot
  4. Add the powdered cheese packet and extra ingredients into pot
  5. Return pot to low heat while you stir
  6. Leave on low heat until sauce thickens
  7. Enjoy
