Description

I never liked baked macaroni & cheese until I made it like this. Make sure you broil it for a few minutes at the end to brown the cheese on top; that makes it so tasty. The original recipe called for cheddar cheese, but I like to try different combos. Cheddar and a little shredded Swiss was a delicious option. Add extra shredded cheese, you will not be sorry.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups Uncooked Elbow Pasta
  • ¼ cups Butter
  • ¼ cups Flour
  • ½ teaspoons Salt
  • ¼ teaspoons Pepper
  • ¼ teaspoons Ground Mustard
  • ¼ teaspoons Worcestershire Sauce
  • 2 cups Milk
  • 2 cups Shredded Cheese

Preparation

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Cook pasta and drain.

Melt butter in saucepan over low heat.

Stir in flour, salt, pepper, ground mustard and Worcestershire sauce.

Cook over medium-low heat, stirring constantly, until smooth and bubbly; remove from heat.

Stir in milk.

Heat to boiling, stirring constantly.

Boil and stir for 1 minute.

Add cheese. Cook and stir until cheese is melted.

Stir pasta into cheese sauce.

Pour into ungreased baking dish (I like to use to use my Pyrex 2 qt. round baking dish. It seems to dry out if you use a more shallow dish.)

Add some extra shredded cheese to cover top.

Bake uncovered for about 25 minutes, until bubbly.

Broil for a few minutes, until cheese on top browns.

My daughter (9) made this for me for mother’s day. She didn’t bake it, just served it straight from the pan. It was delicious. I’m glad there’s a little left over for lunch today!

Yumm! I just made this today for lunch and it was superb! I couldn’t wait to bake it, I just served it up in a bowl and inhaled it. Thanks so much for this easy and delicious recipe! I will no longer purchase mac n cheese in the box. This was quick and easy, perfect.

I also made this a few weeks ago without baking it and it’s the best mac and cheese I have ever had. The flavor it great. I’d never thought of using dry mustard and wochestershire. I will never buy mac and cheese again, and will always use your recipe! Thanks for it!
