The other day Mimi posted her Mac and Cheese and of course it made ME want mac and cheese. So…here is my version of this perfect comfort food. I use a really basic recipe.
Preheat Oven to 350 degrees
Boil 2 Cups of Elbow Macaroni (or whatever you prefer)
For the Cheese sauce
In a sauce pan saute 1/2 chopped onion with 3 tbls of butter
Add 3 tbls of flour and make a roux
Add salt, pepper and dry mustard to taste
Add 2 cups of milk – bring to a boil and let thicken (about a minute)
Remove from heat – add 2 cups of shredded cheese (whatever you like) For this one I used a combination of sharp cheddar, goat cheese and fontina…yums.
In a greased baking dish add cooked pasta and cheese sauce – bake for 25 minutes until bubbling.
It doesn’t get much better or much easier than this for pure comfort food.
