    Mac sauce (Bechamel)

    Directions:

    1. 1
      Cook the macaroni in salted water until a little shy of al dente; drain, rinse with cold water, and drain again.
    2. 2
      Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F; bake walnuts in a single layer until brown and toasty, 5 to 10 minutes (you can also toast them in a hot skillet, stirring constantly, 3 minutes). Cool the nuts and coarsely chop.
    3. 3
      Heat milk in a saucepan over medium heat until it starts bubbling around the edges, but not a full boil; remove from heat.
    4. 4
      In a separate saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.
    5. 5
      When it has just melted, whisk in the flour snd continue to whisk until a light brown, about 3 minutes; remove from heat.
    6. 6
      Slowly pour in the milk, while whisking, then return the pot to medium high heat and whisk 2 to 3 minutes.
    7. 7
      The sauce should be smooth and thick enough to coat the back of a spoon at this point; add the salt.
    8. 8
      Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the cheese until melted, about 3 minutes; slowly stir in the pasta, stirring until heated through.
    9. 9
      Ladle mac + blue into bowls and top with walnuts.

      Rich and delicious.....I did skip the walnuts, though....although I know they would be a great addition...<br/>A tasty spin on an old classic.<br/>Made for PRMR.
