"It is possible to make mac and cheese using three ingredients," says author of, fittingly, The Best 3-Ingredient Cookbook: 100 Fast and Easy Recipes for Everyone and nutritionist Toby Amidor, MS, RD, CDN, of Toby Amidor Nutrition. "The trick in this recipe is to use the evaporated milk to cook the pasta instead of water, and then melt in the cheese. To make it healthier, use whole grain pasta and opt for reduced-fat cheddar cheese."

Instructions:

1. Place the pasta in a large skillet. Add the salt and enough cold water to just cover the pasta. Bring the mixture to a boil over high heat.

2. Lower the heat to medium and continue cooking until most of the water is absorbed, about 6 minutes.

3. Add the evaporated milk and stir to combine. Raise the heat to high and bring the mixture to a gentle boil.

4. Reduce the heat to medium-low and add the cheese. Stir continuously until the mixture is smooth and has thickened, 1 to 2 minutes. Serve warm.
