Ingredients

How to make it

  • Preheat the oven to 375°F. and butter 1-1/2 quart casserole dish.
  • Warm milk, either in microwave for approximately 2-1/2 minutes or over low heat on stovetop until tiny bubbles begin to form on sides.
  • Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat.
  • Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the paste cooks and bubbles a bit, but don't let it brown — about 2 minutes.
  • Add the hot milk, continuing to stir as the sauce thickens. Bring it to a boil.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste, stir in cheese, lower the heat, and cook, stirring for 2 to 3 minutes more.
  • Remove from heat.
  • Put the cooked macaroni into the casserole, pour the cheese sauce over it, and mix gently with a fork.
  • Sprinkle the grated cheese evenly over the top and spread the crumbs over the cheese.
  • Bake, uncovered, until the top is golden and the sauce is bubbling, about 30 minutes.
