  • 2 rounded Tbsp. flour
  • 2 cups 2% milk

  1. Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add macaroni noodles. Cook 8 to 9 minutes until soft but still firm, al dente. Rinse with cold water and drain very well.
  2. Prepare sauce by melting butter in saucepan; using a whisk, mix in flour, and then slowly add milk, mixing with whisk until it thickens.  Add about half of the shredded cheese and continue to whisk till smooth.
