Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

I apologize for being M.I.A. as some of you know. I work from home and my blog isn't my main source of income. I've been self educating myself for what I do so that I know what I'm talking about as I assist my customers. Anywho.

I've had a few of you ask for this recipe after I broke it down on  how to prevent cooking too much Mac well without further ado ;-)


1 cup shredded cheese (I prefer a mixture of sharp cheddar and swiss)
2 tablespoons of flour 
2 tablespoons of margarine
3/4 cup of milk
1/2 teaspoon of salt or seasoning salt or both :)
1/2 teaspoon of pepper

Prepare a pot of boiling water to boil 3/4 cup of macaroni. Boil for approximately 8 minutes or until aldente. Once the pasta is to your liking simply drain in a collander and sit aside until ready to prepare for baking. Next melt margarine in a boiler and add the flour whisking continuously until you've made a roux. Next add milk and continue to whisk. This may take about 5 minutes until you've created a creamy sauce at this time add cheese and adore the beautiful cheese sauce you've just created.

Now its time to combine the pasta and cream sauce in a glass dish for baking. Preferably I sprinkle a little salt and pepper on the pasta as well making sure each bite is tasty and not bland. At this time sprinkle some shredded cheese on top with a dash of chili powder for decoration and bake at 375 for about 15 minutes.

Note: This is only one way to make home made baked mac and cheese. How do you make yours? I'd love for you to share. I'm up for trying new recipes.
