Macaroni and Cheese

This is another one of my favourite, especially in the winter. It's easy to make, and it's one of my comfort food (because hubby makes them.) He added bread crumbs on top, it's delicious! Gotta take a pic before it's all gone.

8 oz. elbow macaroni, or 2 cups whole wheat elbow macaroni
¼ cup butter or margarine
¼ cup flour, all-purpose
1 tsp. salt
¼ tsp. pepper
2 cups milk
2 cups Cheddar cheese (medium), grated(8 oz.)
1) Preheat oven to 375°F.  Cook macaroni as package label directs; drain.
2) Meanwhile, melt butter in medium saucepan.  Remove from heat.  Stir in flour, salt, and pepper                       until smooth.  Gradually stir in milk.  Bring to boiling, stirring constantly.  Reduce heat, and simmer mixture 1 minute.  Remove from heat.
3) Stir in 1½ cups cheese.
4) Pour macaroni into a 1½ quart shallow casserole dish.  Pour in sauce and mix.  Sprinkle remaining cheese over top.
5) Bake 15 minutes, or until cheese is golden brown.  Serves 4 to 6.
