      I really like this mac and cheese. I have used it on a few occasions when I wanted the real deal. It is also a good base. I always add a dash or so of pepper, garlic powder and onion powder and a 1/4 tsp of dried mustard. It is not enough to overpower the cheese, but just enough to add a little bit to it. Very good. Thanks for sharing!

      I've been making this for years - my mother makes it the same way. But we always put the pasta in a casserole dish and pour the sauce over to coat evenly, then bake for 30-45 minutes at 350 degrees (or until lightly browned)....it makes the top layer that crispy cooked cheese and it's SO delicious! (we use 1 box elbow noodles, 1 block of cracker barrel extra sharp cheddar...same amount of butter, add enough flour to make a thick paste, then add milk to thin....then cheese etc.).

      I've tried a bunch of the mac cheese recipes on food.com. This one is the family's favourite by far. Has a very cheesy taste where many others just taste "creamy". After following all the instructions here, I like to put everything in a caserole dish, add a bit more shredded cheese on top and then throw it in the oven for 20 min or so at 350. This way the top is all crusty and fantastic. But if we're in a rush, it's great just the way it is too.
