This is my sister-in-law's mac and cheese recipe. This is one of her "signature" dishes that she has at family gatherings.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Cook macaroni as directed on package (approx 10 minutes).
  2. In a seperate skillet, melt the butter and blend in the flour, salt, and pepper. Heat until bubbly and brown.
  3. Gradually add the milk, stirring until smooth and thickened.
  4. In a large baking dish, alternate layers of macaroni and cheese.
  5. Cover with sauce.
  6. Sprinkle breadcrumbs on top (optional).
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
  8. Variation: Use a combination of Velveeta and other cheese. Also, try topping with additional cheese for an extra cheesy kick!

I made the recipe for one cup macaroni. I added some sirachi sauce to the sauce, and then a tomato diced in the layers. Worked out very well, I did stir once while baking so I would have a few more crispy brown bits. Will make this again.

Made for Zaar Alphabet Tag game...delicious! Definately a keeper! I mixed the velveeta into the sauce and followed the rest of the ingredients. Thank you!

This was good and child-approved. I had spots with no cheese throughout the dish so ended up stirring the casserole to get even coverage. I will add a bit more cheese next time also. Reviewed for ZWT4.
