Recipe Ingredients for Macaroni and Cheese

8 ounce whole wheat macaroni, cooked
4 tbsp butter
4 tbsp flour
2 1/2 cups skim milk, heated
1 1/2 cup Cheddar cheese, shredded
1/2 cup bread crumbs, buttered

Recipe Directions for Macaroni and Cheese

  1. Preheat the oven to 375F.

  2. Melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan.

  3. Stir in the flour and cook, stirring constantly, until the paste cooks and bubbles a bit, but don't let it brown--about 2 minutes.

  4. Add the hot milk, continuing to stir as the sauce thickens. Bring to a boil.

  5. Add salt and pepper to taste; add 1 cup cheese; lower the heat, and cook, stirring, for 2-3 minutes more.

  6. Remove from the heat. Butter a 1 1/2-quart casserole.

  7. Put the cooked macaroni into the casserole, pour the cheese sauce over it, and mix gently with a fork.

  8. Sprinkle the remaining shredded cheese evenly over the top, and spread the crumbs over the cheese.

  9. Bake, uncovered, until the top is golden and the sauce is bubbling, about 30 minutes.
