Macaroni in Cheese Sauce

I finally got Jacob to try real macaroni and cheese. He still prefers boxed macaroni and cheese :-(

Anyway, I asked Meredith to teach me how to make proper cheese sauce and she did, but I made one mistake. With such a mild sauce, I shouldn't have used whole wheat pasta. It didn't allow the full flavour of the sauce to come out. The next time I make this, I'll use regular pasta.

Macaroni in Cheese Sauce

1 package macaroni, prepared following package directions
1 1/2 cups milk
2 tbsp flour
2 tbsp salted butter
1 1/2 cups cheddar cheese, shredded
  1. Whisk together milk and flour in a sauce pan.
  2. Add pepper and butter and begin to whisk on medium heat.
  3. When butter melts and mixture begins to boil, slowly add cheese, constantly whisking until cheese melts.
  4. Pour mixture over pasta and toss before serving.

  2. Your macaroni and cheese looks great! Yes, kids tend to not like the whole-wheat pasta, try it with a regular one next time :)

  3. Try using half sharp cheddar cheese and half adds so much taste
