Homemade Macaroni & Cheese

“The absolute BEST Mac n cheese you will ever eat!”

Serves 10 – 12 | Prep Time 20 min | Cook Time 15 min

1 lb pasta of your choice (I use rotini or macaroni)

1/2 cup butter

1/2 cup flour

4 cups milk

6 cups freshly shredded cheese ( I use mozza but strictly by preference

1 tsp salt

1 tsp pepper

2 tbsp butter

3/4 cup panko bread crumbs

macaroni and cheese

Boil pasta in salted water according to package directions.

Melt butter in large saucepan over medium heat. Sprinkle in flour and whisk and cook 2-3 minutes.

Add in salt and pepper. Slowly pour in 4 cups milk whisking until smooth and heating to a low boil until thickened. Do not stop until thick.

Remove from heat.

Grease a 9×13′ baking dish and add the hot pasta to the dish. Over the top sprinkle 6 cups of freshly shredded cheese. Pour the thickened cream sauce over the hot pasta and cheese and let it sit until the cheese melts. Stir everything together.

Melt 2 tbsp butter over medium heat. Add panko bread crumbs, stirring constantly 3-5 minutes or until golden brown.

Pour over mac n cheese.

Bake in preheated 325 degree oven 12-15 minutes

For a little extra help, I sometimes add cooked and diced chicken breasts.
