Top Review by mama smurf

Made this to go along as a side to your recipe#367870#367870 and followed the instructions only cutting down on the cayenne pepper for the kids. Everyone enjoyed this (I really did) but they all said it had just a little to much Velveeta cheese and it thickened up when cooling down and very rich (just what I love). I will be making this again and maybe cutting the Velveeta down and adding some minced onion and garlic sauteed to the mixture. Thank you for posting.

While Macaroni is cooking, toss together cheddar and parmesan in a bowl, and set aside and then begin your roux by melting 3 tbs of butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Add 3 tbs of flour and whisk until smooth and bubbly. Add milk slowly continuing to whisk. Add your onion powder, salt, cayenne pepper. Then add the cubes of velvetta to melt. Bring to a boil, and allow to simmer for about 2-3 minutes. Remove from heat and add you bowl of cheddar and parmesan cheese, mix until smooth and melted. After pasta is cooked, drain and add to cheese mixture. Pour into 2 quart dish, top with extra cheese. Bake at 350 for 20 miunutes. If you like a crispy top, increase oven temp to broil and cook 3 additional minutes until top is slightly brown and crispy.
