Baked Mac ‘n Cheese

  • 4 cups uncooked spiral or elbow pasta
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk (I use 1%)
  • 1/2 tsp. salt
  • 1/4 tsp. pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. ground mustard
  • 1/4 tsp. Worcestershire sauce
  • Dash of ground nutmeg (I omit this, as I can’t stand nutmeg)
  • 2 cups (8 oz.) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 8 oz. processed cheese (Velveeta), cubed

Cook pasta according to package directions. In a 4-qt. saucepan, melt butter; stir in flour until smooth. Gradually add milk; stir in the salt, pepper, mustard, Worcestershire sauce, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil; cook and stir constantly for 2-3 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheeses until melted.

Drain pasta; stir into cheese sauce. Transfer to an ungreased 2-qt. baking dish (if you don’t have this, I learned this weekend that a 9×13 baking dish is perfect, too). Bake, uncovered, at 350° for 22-25 minutes or until bubbly.

Yield: 8 servings
