I love this macaroni and cheese!
Quick Macaroni and Cheese
16 oz elbow macaroni, cooked and drained
1 stick unsalted butter
1/2 cup white all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
4 cups whole milk
4 cups shredded cheese
Start by preparing your elbow macaroni.
Spray a 9×13-inch baking pan with non-stick cooking spray. Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F.
In a large pot, melt the unsalted butter. Add in the white all-purpose flour, salt and black pepper and whisk constantly for 5 minutes until smooth and bubbly.
Add in the milk, whisking constantly and continue to cook until warm and bubbly which will take about 10 minutes.
Add in the shredded cheese. Whisk until melted, smooth and thick.
Add in the prepared elbow macaroni and stir well until everything is combined.
Pour the macaroni and cheese into the prepared pan. Top with shredded cheese if desired. Bake, in preheated oven, for 30 minutes. Remove and cool slightly.
