"From Southern to the Core a beautfful cookbook I received in the 2011 Cookbook Swap (fooddotcom) from, BusyMomof3, this reminds me of the cheese and mac I learnt in high school nearly 40 years ago from an American teacher the only difference was we used Australian cheddar as American cheese, the only addition I personally made was to add a sprinkle of paprika, unfortunately due to dietary restrictions it is no longer made. In the cooking time I have included cooking the pasta (this could vary a little on variety - I allowed 15 minutes which would I think be the maximum)"

Make white sauce of butter, flour, milk, salt and pepper (do this by blending these ingredients over a low heat ) - o'kay what I do - melt butter and add flour and cook off for a minute or two over low heat and then add warmed milk and whisk till smooth and let thicken over heat and then add 2/3 of the cheese into this mixture and stir until melted.

Step 4

Pour the entire combination over the cooked macaroni in a greased baking dish and sprinkle with remaining cheese over the top and bake for 30 minutes.

Such a nice basic version of mac and cheese. When I'm in the mood for comfort food, I love the simple versions without lots of additions and this really fit the bill. Thanks for sharing, Pat. Made for FYC tag.
