  2. Cook the macaroni in plenty of salted boiling water according to the instructions on the package, or until al dente. Drain and rinse under cold water. Place in a water bowl and set aside until required.
  3. In another pan, bring the milk to a boil and set aside.
  4. Melt the butter in a heavy saucepan over low heat. Whisk in the flour and cook for 5 minutes, whisking continously. Be careful not to let the mixture brown.
  5. Remove from the heat and whisk the hot milk into the butter and flour mixture. When smoothly blended, return to medium heat and continue cooking for about 5 minutes, whicsking constantly until sauce is smoot and thick. Add the salt.
  6. Add the sauce to the macaroni. Ad the three-quarters of the crumbled blue cheese and stir well. Transfer the macaroni mixture to the prepared baking dish and spread in an even layer.
  7. Sprinkle the remaining cheese evenly over the surface. Bake for 25 minutes, until bubbling hot.
