Mac and Cheese any time of year

Check out this one - Mac and Cheese any time of year.
This one is quick and easy and so much better than that "box" mix. And really doesn't take much longer than that one....but tastes so much better!

  • 8 oz./225 g macaroni noodles
  • ½ stick unsalted butter
  • ½ cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups reduced-fat (2%) milk
  • ½ tbsp. coarse kosher salt
  • 10 oz./285 g cheddar cheese, shredded

Preheat oven to 400° F

Pour noodles into Microwave Pasta Maker and add 4 cups water. 
Microwave on high power 10 minutes. 
Drain and add to medium bowl.

Meanwhile, melt butter in pan over medium heat. Whisk in flour.

Pour milk and salt into butter flour mixture and bring to a boil, stirring constantly. 
Mixture will thicken once it boils.

Add cheese and whisk until melted.

Pour cheese sauce over noodles and stir to combine. 
Pour into UltraPro 2-Qt./2 L Square Pan and place uncovered in oven for 30 minutes or until mixture is hot and bubbly.  Yes our UltraPro can go into the oven!  

Now I would make a breadcrumb crust (using breadcrumbs and butter) to put on top before putting into the oven.  Just like grandmom use to make.

Check out the Tupperware pieces noted here on my Tupperware Site, including the UltraPro piece that can go into the oven or microwave or both.  I LOVE my UltraPro pieces.  So much more than your mama's Tupperware!
