It's very good (we don't have it very often) and I only ask because any other recipe i have come across makes a white sauce then adds the pasta and what not.
so what do you do?
Mine is very similar to yours except that I pour either 2 or 3 beaten eggs with some mustard and a little milk added over the whole thing. Oh an I often add sliced tomatoes and bacon pieces across the top. It's always eaten with relish.
I only ever use grated mature cheddar.

have and like several recipes...the traditional roux with cheese to make a fine sauce to bake with the macaroni...sharp cheddar, (Martha's is very good!) but you know, dill havarti is great too!!

but I love many other baked macaroni recipes, and Giada's is real good with spinach and mushrooms and cheese etc.

And there is an Italian Linguini with quatro fromagi e salumi (four cheeses and salami) that is to live for!!

viva variety!

I forgot, I put add milk in right at the end (about half way up the bowl)
It's laisez-faire, I don't even give a care.
Let's make Friday part of the weekend and give every new baby a chocolate eclair.

Alas! So many ways to enjoy macaroni and cheese. So little time.

I make a roux, whisk in some milk then add extra sharp white cheddar. Steam some cauliflower and pasta is either penne or farfalle. Mix it all up and top with homemade croutons (I usually make those with diced rosemary bread and throw them in a skillet with olive oil until they are browned).

It's been a while, I should make that soon.
