macaroni-cheese-recipe
I have already a cheesy pasta recipe which can be made in a jiffy. This one is also similar but found this recipe interesting. And always wanted to try a proper mac n cheese. I should sure try in oven too, but this one is a short cut method without any fancy items. My husband never liked the pasta sauce with tomato and likes this way, cheesy and juicy! I am sure kids would love to have this for evening snack or dinner. Macaroni and cheese is a classic recipe for pasta and cheese lovers!

  3. When butter melts, add the mixed all purpose flour and mix with a whisk.3-add-mix
  4. Add milk gradually with mixing with the whisk and mix to form a smooth sauce. As it gets heated, the sauce becomes thicker. Do this only in medium or low flame.4-mix

  6. When the sauce is ready, pour it over the cooked pasta and mix well. 6-pour-mix

Notes

  • Do not let the milk boil at any time, or cook in high flame as it may lead to curdled sauce!
  • Eat hot!
  • You can try with any kind of pasta too!
  • If you dont have mustard powder, just crush some mustard seeds(big variety) you have and use it.
