Basic Macaroni and Cheese

Especially for Kadus_mama. This is just a very basic and easy to do Mac & Cheese recipe. Hope you will like it :).

1 cup macaroni
2 tbsp butter
1 tbsp flour
salt and pepper to taste
1.5 cup milk
2 cups grated Cheddar cheese
1 small onion ( if like)


  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and cook for 8 to 10 minutes. Drain.
  2. While the pasta is cooking, melt 2 tablespoons butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in the minced onion (if use) and cook until the onion softens and turns translucent, about 5 minutes.
  3. Stir in the flour, pepper and salt until incorporated, then pour in the milk (gradually while stirring) and bring to a simmer.
  4. Simmer, stirring constantly until the milk has thickened, about 10 minutes.
  5. Take the milk mixture off of the heat and stir in the Cheddar cheese until melted.
    Pour cheese sauce over the macaroni.
    Serve warm.

Add boiled / steamed vegetables like carrots, broccoli, cauliflower if like.
Can also add more cheese on top of the macaroni and cheese sauce and baked for 15-20min in a preheated oven (175C).
