Ingredients

1 lb
land-o-lakes yellow american cheese sliced
1 stick
butter
1/2 c
flour
4 c
whole milk
1 lb
elbow macaroni or shells
salt and pepper to taste

Directions Step-By-Step

1
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Sprinkle in flour to form a paste. Add milk and whisk bringing to a slight boil to thicken. If you need to add more flour whisk it in.
2
After it thickens add cheese and stir till melted. Make sure heat is not too high because you don't want it to burn.
3
In a large pot with salted water cook pasta very al dente. Drain and put back into pasta pot.
4
Add cheese mixture and mix well (it may look a little soupy but the pasta will absorb the sauce when it bakes). Add salt and pepper at this time to taste.
5
Pour into a casserole dish sprayed with Pam and layer a few pieces of cheese on top. Cover with foil and bake till bubbly.
