Laurens Mac & Cheese

  2. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; Mix the flour, salt and pepper together until smooth. Slowly pour milk into butter-flou mixture, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Add cheddar cheese to the milk mixture and stir until the cheese has melted, about 2-4 minutes.
  3. Put macaroni in cheese sauce until completely covered
  4. Place mixed macaroni and cheese in a baking pan and bake at 375 degrees for about 10 minutes to get that sticky baked good (but be careful when baking so you don’t overcook the macaroni or burn the cheese)
