Macaroni and Cheese

Macaroni and Cheese

Serves 2 (multiply recipe to serve more)

  • ¼ pound macaroni
  • ¼ pound (1 cup) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 2 Tbsp flour
  • 1 cup milk
  • ¼ tsp salt

Cook macaroni according to package instructions. Meanwhile, prepare the cheese sauce:

Heat the milk in the microwave for 1 minute per cup to warm it (this step is optional, but it speeds the rest of the recipe). Melt the butter, add the flour and cook over medium heat briefly until the flour is partially cooked (but do not let it brown). Add the milk, cook over medium to medium-high heat, stirring all the while, until the mixture starts bubbling and thickens. Take off the heat, mix in the cheese, and let it stand until the cheese melts. Mix again until well- combined, add salt to taste, and combine with the drained, cooked macaroni.
