Homemade Macaroni & Cheese

Follow cooking directions on macaroni package. Use the amount you will need for your family. Place drained macaroni in greased casserole. Pour cheese sauce over macaroni and grate a little more cheese on top. Bake at 400 degrees until brown.

Cheese Sauce:
2 tablespoons butter
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon pepper
1/4 teaspoon dry mustard
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Heat butter in 1 1/2 quart saucepan over low heat until melted. Stir in flour, dry mustard, salt, and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is smooth and bubbly; remove from heat. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in cheese until melted.

You can use this sauce for tuna casseroles also. Just leave out the cheese and dry mustard.

Testing comment: When using this recipe, double or triple it depending on how much you are fixing. A single recipe would be great to make for one or two people.
