An easy and yummy comfort meal of Mac n cheese perfect for the fall/winter months. Goes great with some baguette bread.


1 lb macaroni; boiled al dente, according to pkg. directions
2 cups white sauce; (recipe below)
2 cups yellow cheddar
2 cups Muenster cheese
**White Sauce:
2 cups heavy cream; (2 half pints)
2 cups milk
8 tbsp butter
6 tbsp flour

Original recipe makes 6



Heat the milk and cream together to a boil. Melt butter in saucepan. When melted, then add all the flour stirring constantly. Let cook for 4-5 minutes, continuing to stir. Remove from heat and add warm milk and cream while whisking if sauce is too thick, add a touch more milk.

Add cheese to white sauce and stir. (Save a bit of cheese for the topping. I also add bread crumbs and paprika to the top). Stir sauce into macaroni and place in a buttered casserole dish. Place in 350° oven until slightly brown and bubbly on top 25-30 minutes.

This is a great recipe. I wasn't sure when I first saw it, because I have never made a white sauce that way, but it comes out great. perfectly creamy and cheesy. I used Sharp Cheddar and a mixture called Casserole Cheese. everybody loved it. I put some bread crumbs and some of the Frenches Onions on top. This recipe is a definite keeper.
