    3. 3
      In a sauce pan, melt the butter over low heat so that it doesn't burn.
    4. 4
      Add flour and stir with a wisk until the mixture thickens.
    5. 5

    6. 6
      Once the milk is added, continue to stir with the wisk.

    9. 9
      Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top of the shells.

      This particular recipe came in handy for me as I made it for a neighbor couple who love mac & cheese almost anyway I fix it, & they very much enjoyed this one, too! AND, now that I've had a taste of it myself, I'll be keeping it around a while, because it is absolutely delicious, & I want to make it for just the 2 of us before long! Many thanks for sharing it!
