#76 :: Easter Dinner :: Macaroni & Cheese

This is another one of mom's holiday staples. It seriously doesn't feel like a holiday meal to me without her homemade macaroni and cheese. I call her every holiday and double check the recipe to make sure I do it just right! We also had one of our new favorites with this Easter dinner, Parmesan Roasted Asparagus.


2 cups uncooked macaroni
4 Tbsp. butter
4 Tbsp. flour
3 cups of milk
2 cups Velveeta cheese, cubed
Salt & pepper to taste

In a pot of salted water, cook the macaroni noodles for about 8 minutes or until al dente. Drain the macaroni and transfer them to a 13 x 9 baking dish.

In a large saucepan, melt the butter. Add the flour 1 Tbsp. at a time until it is mixed with the butter. Add 1 1/2 cup of milk and stir for a few minutes until the flour begins to incorporate. Then add the remaianing 1 1/2 cup of milk and continue to stir.

Once the sauce begins to thicken, begin adding the Velveeta cubes a few at a time, and continue stirring until they are all melted in. Add salt & pepper to taste.

Pour the sauce over the noodles, cover with aluminum foil, and bake at 350 for 30 minutes.

Makes 8 servings.
