  • Spray large saucepan with non-stick spray. Melt butter in saucepan on medium heat. When butter is about halfway melted, slice and add cream cheese.
  • When cream cheese is about halfway melted, slice and add Velveeta. When Velveeta Cheese begins to melt, add 1 cup milk and stir well. Add parmesan cheese and then add other 1 cup milk. Continue cooking until cheese sauce is well-blended
  • While making cheese sauce, cook macaroni with salted water according to package directions but reduce cooking time by 25% so macaroni is just done (still firm). Drain and rinse macaroni. Toss macaroni in large bowl with cheese sauce (and ham).
  • Spray 9x12 pan with non-stick spray. Pour half of mixture into pan and cover with half of grated cheese. Pour remaining half into pan and cover with remaining grated cheese.
  • Bake covered with non-stick foil at 350 degrees F for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue baking until bubbly. You can prepare dish unbaked the day before and refrigerate. In this case, increase baking time to 45-60 minutes.


I invented this recipe on New Year’s Eve about 5 years ago. Since then, it has become a tradition, and everyone says it's the best mac & cheese they've tasted.
