Mac & Cheese

A real creamy mac & cheese dish.

Ingredients

Directions

  1. Pre-heat oven to 350 °F (175 °C).
  2. In a small saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Whisk in flour and salt. Gradually whisk in milk.
  3. Simmer over low heat, stirring frequently, until the sauce thickens, about 4 to 6 minutes. Add half the cheese and stir until melted.
  4. Pour the cooked elbow macaroni into an 8x8" glass baking dish. Pour sauce over noodles, then mix. Sprinkle remaining cheese over the top.
  5. Bake until heated through and the cheese on top has melted, 20 to 25 minutes.
  6. Serve warm or chilled.
  7. Note: based on recipe from "OK, So Now You're a Vegetarian" by Lauren Butts.
