Mac ‘n Cheese Impossible Pie does the seemingly impossible. Put the elbow macaroni in uncooked, along with eggs, milk and cheese, and it emerges as a crustless, quiche-like concoction that hits all the right notes for lunch or dinner.

Soon enough – perhaps already? – there will be more rich, fancy food than you can wave a fork at.

In the meantime, though, we still need to get dinner on the table, don’t we?

Before we cave in to the excesses of the season, let’s take it easy with a weekday supper that caves in to all our comfort foods, but is deceptively simple.

Remember how we have made Impossible Pies several times before – Impossible Quesadilla PieSpinach Feta Greek Impossible Pie, and even an Impossible Cherry-Almond Pie for dessert?
