This mac & cheese is absolutely delicious! I had never liked mac & cheese, but my mom had me try some of my Aunt Mandy's one night and I fell in love... I had to get the recipe! It's actually pretty simple to make. My aunt spent years trying different ingredients & methods and finally found the perfect way. So here it is!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Preheat oven to 400 degrees.
  2. Cook noodles.
  3. While noodles are cooking make the medium white sauce: melt the stick of butter in a pan on stove top on high heat. When melted, add the flour and stir until smooth. Slowly add the milk while constantly stirring so it doesn't lump. When it's of a nice, medium thick consistency, add 3 cups of the cheese. Let melt while stirring constantly. When melted, turn off stove.
  4. Pour some of the sauce in a 13" x 9" x 2" rectangular pan until it fills about the bottom 1/2" of the pan.
  5. Add the noodles and then pour rest of sauce on top. Stir together.
  6. Put last 3 cups of cheese on top.
  7. Bake for about 20 minutes or until golden and bubbling.

This was good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I added a good bit of pepper as we thought it needed some seasoning. Made for Spring PAC 2011.
