Super Simple Homemade Mac and Chs Without Baking

We had homemade macaroni and cheese for lunch this week and I have a super simple recipe to share. You'll need:

  • Pasta cooked(I used mini penne because that is what I had)

  • Butter or margarine

  • Flour (White or Unbleached area best)

  • Natural Cheese Shredded (I used a bag of Mexican)

  • Salt and Pepper (I like white)

First cook the pasta (1/2 to 3/4 of a 1lb box). While it is cooking melt 2 tbs of butter or margarine in a hot pan. Whisk in 2 tbs of flour and then allow the flour to cook for a minute. (this called a rue and you make of tons of sauces like this.) Then add about 2 cups milk. Whisk the flour and milk together and heat on medium stirring occasionally until it thickens into a sauce. Mix in shredded cheese to taste. Pour this sauce over your finished pasta and stir, salt and pepper. That's it.
