Can I make mac n cheese with parmesan only?

Can I make it with only that cheese? I there something I can add to make it tastier? I just want to make it tonight and don’t have time to go to the store. The only other cheese I have are some slices of mozzarella. I have elbow pasta. How do I make this?
Alfredo sauce? How is that made?

    Parmesan Shells and Cheese

    A rich and delicious macaroni and cheese recipe, made with freshly grated Parmesan cheese, seasonings, and hot cooked small shells. Top with buttered bread crumbs for a delicious macaroni and cheese casserole, and serve as a side dish or main dish.


    * 4 tablespoons butter
    * 6 tablespoons flour
    * 1 cup chicken broth
    * 1 1/2 cups milk
    * 1/2 teaspoon salt
    * 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
    * 3/4 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
    * 8 ounces small shell macaroni, uncooked
    * 1 cup soft bread crumbs
    * 3 tablespoons melted butter
    * 1 tablespoon freshly chopped parsley or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
    * paprka, optional

    In a saucepan, melt butter over medium-low heat. Stir in flour, cooking until hot and bubbly, about 1 minute. Gradually stir in chicken broth and milk. Add the salt and pepper. Continue to cook, stirring, until thickened and bubbly. Stir in the Parmesan cheese and continue to cook and stir until cheese is melted.

    Meanwhile, cook the shells in boiling salted water as directed on package. Drain well and add to the sauce mixture, blending well. Transfer to a lightly buttered 2-quart baking dish. Combine bread crumbs with melted butter and parsley flakes; sprinkle over the casserole.

    Bake at 325° for 25 to 35 minutes, or until hot and bubbly. Sprinkle with paprika before serving, if desired.
    Serves 4 to 6.

    If you use just parmesan, that will be an alfredo sauce. It will be tasty. You can also add the mozzarella in.

    melt 4 T butter in a large sauce pan stir in 3 T flour and cook for 1 minute…slowly stir in 2 cups of warm chicken stock or milk continue to stir until it gains a little body … slowly stir in 1/2 -1 cup of cheese..

    hints for flavor…I like to steep onions and thyme or rosemary in the stock or warm milk…then strain it…the flavor is subtle and a nice addition.

    No. Parmesan isn’t typically a melting cheese and sliced mozzarella isn’t really a cheese for a whole entire dish; both are more for topping things are adding some extra flavor. And parmesan is too salty to be made a whole sauce. Way too salty.

    I don’t think you’re having mac and cheese tonight. Sorry.

    you can make alfredo sauce if you have cream

    You can make mac and cheese with just about any combination of cheese you can think of. If parm is what you want to use, then you’d make something similar to an alfredo sauce to toss with the noodles and then bake. You could make layers with the mozz. cheese.
