. . . or as I like to call it, the ultimate of comfort food. It’s got butter. Pasta. Cheese. It’s melty. It’s creamy. It’s dreamy. It’s carbs at their best. It’s like a whole team of carbs. A squadron of carbs. All here for you. To make sure that you have the best comfort that food can provide.

 

1 c elbow macaroni

2 T butter or margarine

1 T flour

1/2 t salt

1/4 t fresh ground pepper

1 1/4 c whole milk

1/2 t ground mustard

2 1/2 c cheddar cheese, grated (divided)

 

Cook macaroni according to package directions. Drain. Meanwhile, make cheese sauce by melting butter or margarine in saucepan over medium/low heat. Whisk in flour and salt and pepper. Stir until smooth. Whisk in milk and ground mustard. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, until mixture is thickened and bubbly. Add 2 cups cheese. Stir until cheese is melted.
