DIRECTIONS

  • Boil macaroni noodles until tender; drain and set aside.
  • Preheat oven to 350.
  • In a medium sauce pan, melt butter on medium heat.
  • Add flour one tablespoon at a time, and whisking between each addition.
  • Whisk in seasonings, and cook for a couple of minutes, whisking constantly, so as not to burn.
  • Add milk, half a cup at a time, whisking together between each addition. Allow to thicken (and keep on slowly whisking).
  • Add all but a handful of cheese (for topping) and stir until completely incorporated.
  • Add cheese sauce to macaroni noodles, then put everything into a baking dish.
  • Sprinkle the remaining cheese on top.
  • Bake for 25 minutes, then broil for an additional couple of minutes to crisp up the top (watch it so the top doesn't burn).
