Recipe Ingredients for Easy Mac and Cheese

2 tablespoons of margarine or butter
2 tablespoons of flour
1 cup skim milk
1 cup of cheddar cheese
2 cups of macaroni, uncooked

Recipe Directions for Easy Mac and Cheese

  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions.

  2. Put the margarine and flour in a sauce pan on medium heat (lower side of medium) and stir the ingredients together as the margarine melts.

  3. Add the milk and mix together with the flour mixture with a whisk.

  4. Once the mixture thickens turn the heat to low, or remove the pot from the burner.

  5. Add the cheese, stir until it melts and add fresh ground pepper if you prefer. (The longer you cook the sauce the thicker it will become. To thin it down add a tablespoon or two of milk).

  6. Drain the pasta and mix the cheese sauce and pasta together in a serving dish.
