Easy Mac and Cheese

My daughter LOVES macaroni and cheese, although I don't fix it very often due to the calorie count. However, here is my easy Mac and Cheese recipe:


Easy Mac and Cheese

--8 oz. dry macaroni
--2 TBSP butter
--2 TBSP flour
--2 cups milk
--2 cups shredded cheddar cheese (or cheese of choice)
--Salt and pepper to taste

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.

Prepare macaroni per directions on box.

In a saucepan, melt butter. Add flour and stir to remove all lumps. Then add the milk and cook until thick, stirring continuously. Add salt and pepper to taste and then cheese. Cook over low heat until melted.

Stir cheese mixture into drained macaroni and spread into a baking dish. Bake for 20 minutes. Cool for 5 minutes then enjoy!

Yea! Thanks for posting this! You're not going to believe this but I've tried at least 4 different mac & cheese recipes in the past 2 months - still looking for that "easy, good one!"

Oh awesome! I have been looking for a mac n' cheese recipe that does not contain weird ingredients (like velveeta, which I'm trying to get away from). I can't wait to try this!
