Philly Cheesesteak Mac and Cheese



With a picky family including a 4 year old; mac and cheese is a 5 star meal around here.  How can it not be?  There are so many possibilities.  We have come so far from the blue box.  I have had Philly Cheesesteaks on the brain and when dinner time came it was the perfect opportunity for a dinner fusion.


This one skillet meal starts with pasta cooked in butter and milk to create a soft and tender macaroni.  Provolone and Parmesan cheeses give this sauce the perfect cheesy goodness and a full pound of ground beef  makes this the beefiest mac and cheese.  I love my cheesesteaks loaded with peppers so we added roasted red peppers and peperoncini to really pump up the flavor.

Chad and I both are nuts for this recipe.  It goes from start to finish in just 25 minutes and all in one pot.  It is certain to be on our table again.
