Here’s another one of my ideas for a gift from your kitchen for newlyweds, a recent graduate, or a house-warming present. Purchase a 1.5 casserole dish, include a 2-lb pkg of flour, 1-lb pkg of elbow macaroni, the following recipe, and a gift certificate for $5.
Old-Fashioned Macaroni and Cheese
3 tbs butter or margarine
2 tbs flour
2 cups milk
8-oz shredded sharp cheddar cheese, divided
2 cups elbow macaroni, cooked
Heat oven to 350°F.
Melt butter in large saucepan on low heat. Stir in flour.
Cook and stir 2 min or until bubbly. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to boil on medium heat, stirring constantly.
Simmer on low heat 3 to 5 min or until thickened, stirring constantly. Add 1-1/2 cups cheese. Cook and stir 2 to 3 min or until melted.
Stir in macaroni.
Spoon into 1-1/2-qt. casserole sprayed with cooking spray. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.
Bake 20 min or until heated through.
