MACARONI CHEESEFrom bestcooker 8 years ago
How to make it
- In a large saucepan, cook macaroni according to package instructions until just underdone and not quite al dente (it will stand up to the sauce better). Drain pasta and let it sit in the colander while preparing next step.
- Over low heat, melt butter in the same saucepan used to cook the macaroni. Return pasta to saucepan and stir, coating well with the melted butter.
- Add milk and, stirring constantly, heat through, about a minute.
- Add 1/2 C. cheese, stirring constantly, and cook until cheese melts and is well incorporated. Add remaining 1/2 C. cheese and cook, stirring constantly, until cheese melts. Mixture will continue to thicken as it cooks. When it reaches desired consistency, immediately serve in pasta bowls. Sprinkle additional cheese over tops of servings.
