Creamy Mac and Cheese
  • 1 lb elbow pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 2 cups milk, I use whole milk
  • 2 cups cheddar cheese (grated)
  • Add salt and pepper to taste
  1. Boil pasta according to package directions.
  2. Drain pasta
  3. In the pot that you cooked pasta in heat the butter until melted
  4. Then add the flour and whisk.
  5. Whisk in the milk slowly. This will create a thick sauce. (do not pour all the milk in at once) add about 1/4 cup at a time.
  6. Add in cheese and whisk smooth.
  7. Pour pasta into the sauce and stir with a spatula until the sauce covers the pasta completely.
  8. Add a small amount of milk to a pan when reheating cold mac and cheese so it's creamy.
  9. Add salt and pepper to taste.
You can change up the flavor of this mac and cheese with other types of cheeses. If you're looking for a delicious flavor, start with good quality cheese.
If you typically eat frozen, prepared, Kraft or similar mac and cheese this will not be as salty, add salt according to your taste.
I do like a teaspoon of chicken bouillon added with 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard and 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper.
