    Ingredients:

    Serves: 6

    Yield:

    cups

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Shred cheese and set aside allowing the cheese to come to room temperature, which will help it to melt better.
    2. 2
      Bring a large pot of unsalted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook according to the package directions for al dente pasta.
    3. 3
      In a large saucepan, combine 2 cups of milk with soy sauce, onion powder, dry mustard, paprika, bay leaf, salt, pepper and hot sauce. Place over medium heat and cook until the mixture comes to a gentle simmer.
    4. 4
      In a small bowl, mix the cornstarch with the remaining 1/4 cup of milk. Add the cornstarch mixture to the sauce and stir to combine. Return the sauce to a simmer and cook for 2 or 3 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    5. 5
      Remove saucepan from heat, discard the bay leaf, and add the shredded cheese. Stir until the cheese is completely melted and no lumps remain.
    6. 6
      Add the butter to the cheese sauce and stir until completely melted inches.
    7. 7
      Drain the macaroni (but don't rinse), and return to pot.
    8. 8
      Pour cheese sauce over cooked macaroni and stir until everything is coated. Cover pot and allow it to sit for 5 or 10 minutes before serving.
