We Tried Ina Garten’s Overnight Mac & Cheese & We Totally Get Why It Broke the Internet

In case this is your first time reading one of my articles or watching one of my videos, let me preface it by telling you that I am an Ina Garten super fan. She is the best of the best in my opinion and one of my favorite hobbies is cooking all of her delicious recipes on the weekends. She’s become even more of a culinary superstar during the wild year of 2020. First, she started sharing delicious recipes you can make with pantry items, and of course, we can’t forget the viral video she shared of her supersized cosmopolitan that was basically everyone’s mood for the remainder of the year. But out of all the recipes she shared with us this year, one became so popular that it actually crashed her website. What is this mysterious viral recipe?! Overnight mac and cheese.

Apparently, the recipe was really good because videos of people testing out the recipe soon flooded apps like TikTok. Given the recipe’s epic popularity and my undying love for Ina, I knew I had to try this recipe out for myself to see if it really is as good as everyone says it is.

Check out our video and review up above and if you want to try out the recipe for yourself, you can get the recipe from Ina Garten’s website, The Barefoot Contessa.
