Macaroni and Cheese

Since I’ve learned to cook, we’ve been having significantly less macaroni and cheese.  Kraft mac & cheese has lost its appeal.  This is a completely positive change… however… I must admit I do miss the bit of comfort that a big ol’ bowl of macaroni and cheese brings.

Paul’s sister gave us a recipe for homemade macaroni and cheese that somehow blends that line between comfort food and adult dinner fare – and it’s not much more difficult than opening that blue box!

Baked Macaroni and Cheese

based on a recipe from Carla
makes 4 dinner-sized servings

Ingredients

  • 2 cup macaroni noodles
  • 1/2 stick butter
  • 1/2 cup flour
  • 1-2 cups milk
  • 8 oz American cheese, shredded or cut into small pieces
  • chopped onions

Directions

  1. Boil macaroni noodles according to package directions; drain.
  2. In large saucepan, saute onions in butter.  Add cooked noodles, 1 cup milk, cheese over low heat.  Add more milk to thin if needed.
  3. Pour macaroni into casserole pan and bake uncovered at 375 for 30 minutes.
