A microwave cheese sauce to be tried.

Top Review by michelebelle

Used this recipe to make an impromptu mac & cheese. I had left over (gluten-free) plain elbow macaroni. I substituted margarine and doubled the cheese. I had about two cups of cooked macaroni. I poured the sauce over the macaroni and baked for about 20 minutes. It was quite tasty! I really like the subtle kick of the white pepper. But I do recommend doubling the cheese. 1/3 cup is just not enough to make it cheesy.
