INGREDIENTS

  • 1 ½ cups Elbow macaroni
  • 3 tbsp Butter
  • 3 tbsp All-purpose flour
  • 2 cups Milk, whole
  • ½ tsp Salt
  • ½ tsp Black pepper, freshly ground
  • 2 cups Cheddar cheese, grated

METHOD

  • Preheat oven to 175ºC / 350ºF. Grease a large baking dish.
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil; add pasta.
  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Add all-purpose flour and stir until mixture is lightly browned, about 2 minutes.
  • Add milk and whisk to remove any lumps. Add salt and black pepper. Increase heat to medium-high heat until sauce thickens and starts to bubble, about 6 minutes.
  • Stir in cheddar cheese and whisk until smooth and melted. Remove from heat.
  • When pasta is just before al dente, drain and combine with sauce.
  • Place mixture in prepared baking dish until browned and bubbly, about 20 to 25 minutes.

NOTES

  • Alternatively, you can use cheddar and gruyere cheese
