      Cracker Barrel Macaroni and Cheese

      2 tablespoons butter
      2 tablespoons flour
      1 cup low sodium chicken broth
      1/2 cup cream
      2 1/2 cups shredded colby cheese
      2 1/2 cups uncooked pasta
      1 teaspoon salt

      In a saucepan, melt butter over medium low heat; add the flour a little bit at a time whilst whisking to make a roux.
      Heat the broth.
      Next, add the broth to the roux, and stir with the whisk; this will thicken as it heats.
      Add a little cream, watching for the desired consistency.
      Bring 4 cups water to a boil in a seperate pot; add salt and pasta.
      In the other pot, add shredded cheese a 1/4 of a cup at a time whilst stirring with a spoon. When you have about one cup of cheese in you can add the rest of the cheese.
      Cook the pasta until al dente; strain and combine with the cheese sauce.
      Pour the mix into a casserole and bake uncovered in a preheated oven set to 350°F for about 10 minutes.
      Keep an eye on the mac & cheese, you want it to brown around the edges and in patches on top.
      Remove and let stand for 10 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

      I wonder if this would work with Velveeta instead of Colby cheese?

      I make homemade “Mac n Cheese” alot and you can change the cheese in this recipe. Just follow the recipe as it states ( shredded) it will mix easier in your recipe. And you should have no problems. The “Velveeta”
      that you want to use will give this recipe a milder taste.

      Another little trick here is save some of the cheese and sprinkle it on top before putting it in the oven ( this will give you a nice looking finished product). Yumm
