A good rule of thumb is, if you can throw a noodle on the wall and it sticks, it 's done cooking. Make sure to stir occasionally, you don’t want the noodles to get stuck to the bottom of the pan. It 's not fun to clean up, trust me. While the noodles are cooking you can start to prepare the brats. You will want to cut them up about half an inch in thickness, that way they can cook and cool down faster, so you are not burning your tongue when you eat. If you are just making one box of macaroni and cheese three to four brats should be enough. Once your noodles are cooked to perfection you will need to drain them.
