Lengthy meal prep eats up precious time in the kitchen—so does a mountain of dirty dishes. Hello, one-pot meals. Our first recipe for one-pot mac ’n’ cheese is just as decadent and silky as the béchamel-based fave we grew up with. When the dried pasta cooks in the chicken broth and milk, starches escape and thicken the mixture before two types of cheese (and porky pancetta) take the party to another level.



  1. In a large pot or deep skillet over medium-high heat, brown the pancetta. Add the spices and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Add the broth and milk. Bring to a boil and add the macaroni. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, for 15 to 18 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
  2. Remove from the heat and stir in the cheeses. Season with pepper.
