Marvelicious Mac and Cheese

from the American Dairy Association. They are the ones who gave it that silly name, not me. I love the recipe because it tastes like Stouffers. Yum!

Marvelicious Mac and Cheese

8 ounces elbow macaroni
2 ½ cups milk
1 Tbs butter
3 Tbs flour
¾ tsp salt
2 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese (8oz)
½ cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese, optional

Preheat oven to 375°. Cook macaroni according to package instructions.

Meanwhile, heat milk and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Gradually whisk in flour and salt. Simmer for 1 minute, whisking occasionally.

Remove from heat; stir in 2 cups of cheddar cheese until melted. Add drained macaroni to saucepan and toss with cheese sauce.

Transfer mixture to a greased 8-inch or 9-inch square backing dish. Sprinkle ½ cup cheddar cheese on top if desired. Bake uncovered until hot and bubbly, about 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
