As everyone knows, I am ALL about comfort food: Mashed potatoes and gravy, biscuits and gravy, chocolate ice cream, MACARONI AND CHEESE. If you've ever made it from scratch, you know there's a few steps involved including making a roux, the cheese sauce, boiling and draining the macaroni, laying it in a baking dish, then baking for an hour. Delish, yes. Clean-up, no. Here's a simple and delicious EASY VERSION of the classic found on RECIPEZAAR. I thought I was going to die it was soooo good.
- 230 g macaroni (uncooked)
- 3 cups milk
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 1/2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
- 1/4 cup butter
- 1 1/2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
Melt butter in a saucepan over a medium heat.
Stir in flour and salt.
Add milk and macaroni to saucepan, and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat, and cover.
Simmer for 15 minutes or until pasta is tender, stirring occasionally.
Add cheese, and stir until cheese melts.
