DIRECTIONS

  • Preheat oven to 350°F.
  • Prepare macaroni according to package directions.
  • Melt butter in a large pan.
  • Whisk flour into melted butter to create a light roux (paste).
  • Slowly whisk milk into the roux, whisking constantly to avoid lumps.
  • Allow milk and roux to heat for about one minute, then begin adding the Velveeta.
  • Continue to gently whisk the mixture until all Velveeta has melted, then add a pinch of white or black pepper.
  • After macaroni has cooked, drain the water from the pot and mix in the cheese sauce.
  • Once the macaroni and sauce are mixed together, transfer to a 9 x 13 baking dish.
  • Cook uncovered for 25-30 minutes or until bubbly.
  • Sprinkle 1 or 2 cups of shredded cheddar cheese over the top and bake for 5 more minutes, or until cheddar cheese is thoroughly melted.
  • Remove from oven and allow to cool for 5 to 10 minutes before serving.
