Homemade Mac & Cheese

I don't know about you, but I have been on a quest to find a good homemade macaroni and cheese recipe. Lots of them have bread crumbs that make them dry and that's just not my cup of tea or bowl of macaroni. Anyway, I found a good recipe! My SILs friend, Carli makes a fabulous mac and cheese and she just gave me the recipe. Here it is:



Ingredients:
2 cups cooked macaroni
2 tablespoons flour
2 tablespoons butter
2 1/2 cups milk
3 cups shredded cheese (she uses sharp cheddar, I used colby jack because it's what I had)
More cheese for the top

Directions:
Using a sauce pan, mix the flour and butter. Gradually add the milk until the flour and butter are mixed in. Add the cheese to form a sauce. You can let it simmer to thicken, but you don't have to. After the sauce is formed, mix in the macaroni. Pour macaroni & cheese in a 9x13 casserole dish. Top with cheese. Bake at 350 degrees for 25 minutes or until cheese is melted.
