Macaroni and Cheese - TNT

Hi! I know there are a million different recipes for macaroni and cheese but my sister makes the best I've tasted. I just had to share the recipe:

Mac and Cheese

1 Stick of Butter
4 cups of milk
salt and pepper
16 oz elbow pasta
16 oz (3 c) velveeta cheese, cubed


Preheat oven to 375 degrees
Cook elbow pasta as directed, drain, put in casserole
Melt butter in medium saucepan
Stir in flour, salt, pepper
Gradually add milk, bring to boil, stirring
Reduce and simmer one minute
Stir in cubed cheese, Stir until melted
Pour mixture of elbow in casserole and stir
Bake for 30-40 minutes

Ok, this looks like something my daughter, Jessica, who drives me mad with her fussiness, will just love, and the rest of my family will probably love it too. I'm going to give it a go on Wednesday night! Thanks for the recipe!

American Cheese is the closest to Velveeta you'll get. Look for the title "cheese food" on the label. Also, it is a "cheese" product that needs no refrigeration, so it's usually on the market shelves near "cheez whiz" (cheese in an aerosol can like whipped cream) and by the Kraft Handi Snacks' Cheese 'n Crackers snack foods.
