Marci’s Mac ‘N Cheese:
- 1½ cups uncooked elbow macaroni, ideally whole wheat
- 3 tbsp butter
- 3 tbsp flour, ideally white whole wheat
- ½ tsp salt
- 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese, for best results, personally shred Cabot Sharp
- 2 cups milk
Preheat oven to 350F.
Cook macaroni according to package directions, then drain and set aside.
In a medium-sized pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Gently stir in the flour, salt and pepper.
Gradually add the milk, stirring constantly for several minutes, until thickened.
Remove the pot from the burner. Add the cheese, stirring constantly until it’s melted.
Transfer the macaroni into a medium-sized casserole dish. Pour the cheese mixture over the pasta.
Bake about 45 minutes.
