Smoked Mac & Cheese

a skillet with mac & cheese on top of a grill

One pan pasta bakes are a thing and let me tell you, this is probably the easiest mac and cheese I’ve ever made. My one tip is to make sure you use a hearty pasta like penne or rigatoni so it holds the pasta shape. This Smoked Mac & Cheese would be a great side to a giant slab of ribs or grilled chicken and because it only take 5 minutes to toss together and you can forget about it for 45 minutes, it’s incredibly easy.
