Pour milk in gradually; stirring constantly.
Bring to a boil and boil 2 minutes (stirring constantly).

Reduce heat and cook until thick...about three minutes more Add cheese a little at a time and mix until cheese melts.

Take pan off the heat and add pasta to the saucepan and toss to coat with the cheese sauce.

That's exactly the way I have always made mac and cheese. Sometimes I add a little bit of cayenne pepper or white pepper. It is so good - also try it with fresh tomatoes sliced on top of the last addition of cheese. It never tastes the same twice, because I always use different mixes of cheese.
Saludos, Karen
