Luv's Baked Mac and Cheese (TNT)

this is similar to the one on some macaroni boxes, as my friend pointed out, but is much more rich and cheesy.
-1 c. butter
-1 c. flour
-whole milk
-1 block Cabot's Seriously Sharp Huntrer's cheese (big Wal-marts have it)
-1 bar medium cheddar, any brand
-heavy cream or whipping cream
-hot sauce
-worcestershire sauce
-dry mustard powder
-fresh ground black pepper
-salt
-1 small box elbow macaroni
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------in large, heavy pot, melt butter. mix in flour using wooden spatula. cook for a few minutes, till roux takes on a tan color. add milk; whisk and cook till a thick sauce forms. add more milk as needed. cook flour out for several minutes on low flame, till it bubbles. add cream as desired. the more, the yummier. :D you'll want a fairly viscous sauce; it should be just thick enough to coat the wooden spatula thickly.
season with a dash of hot sauce, plenty of black pepper, about a 1/2 tsp. of dry mustard, a splash of worcestershire, and salt to taste. don't under-salt, as the pasta will dilute the saltiness.
MEANWHILE: boil macaroni for about 5-6 minutes in boiling, salted water.
drain well.

add macaroni to cheese sauce and combine thoroughly. turn into baking dish (13x?) at about 350 for 45 min.-an hour. it's done when a nice brown crust has formed around the edges. this chills well and re-heats beautifully.

That Cabot's Seriously Sharp Huntrer's cheese is really excellent! Far better than you'd expect for the price. Although I like the Sharp Vermont Cheddar even more- I think it's actually slightly sharper.

The recipe sounds excellent! :)
