Mac and cheese!
Mac and Cheese
2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni**
Bring 4 cups water to a boil, add 1 teaspoon salt and cook about 10 minutes or until tender. Drain.
While macaroni cooks make cheese sauce :
Melt 1/4 cup butter in medium sauce pan.
Then add 1/4 cup flour, Whisk to blend in flour and let cook on medium heat a minute or two. Then add 2 cups milk, whisk while adding, and keep stirring while cooking. Bring to a boil and cook until thickened. Turn off heat and add 2 cups grated cheese. Add salt and pepper to taste.
Here's where the kids and I like to eat it! yumm!!
or you can pour into a casserole dish and top with more grated cheese and bake in a 350 degree oven for 20 to 25 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is melty.
**You can use any kind of pasta, I've used shells, and curly macaroni. The cheese sauce is also good on broccoli and cauliflower, scalloped potatoes, etc!
