Homemade Macaroni and Cheese
When I am making sides for dinner this Homemade Mac and Cheese is a frequent addition to our dinner! Not only is it very easy, but it compliments meats well to balance it out with a carb and protein. Of course, it’s also nice that my picky eater will eat it.
I won’t lie though up until I went gluten free I was bred on Kraft Macaroni and Cheese and no matter how hard I try, nothing homemade taste as good as that blue box. I know it’s shameful right? Telling you that a box of Kraft is better than homemade? Well, that’s what happens when your sister makes you that almost every day of your childhood growing up because that was what she always wanted for lunch when she would be babysitting me.
I had to give up though on the blue box when I went gluten free, so the next best thing is this homemade version. Of course, this may be the best thing for you if you love homemade foods, which I do now!
- Cheese Sauce:
- 1 Tbsp Cornstarch
- 1 Tbsp Butter
- 1 Cup Milk
- 1 1/2 Cup Shredded Cheddar Cheese, Reserve 1/2 Cup
- Salt and Pepper to Taste
- 8 oz Elbow Macaroni Pasta, Cooked and Drained or Gluten Free Pasta
In a medium size sauce pan, melt the butter on medium heat. Then, add in the corn starch and milk and continue to whisk together. Lastly, add in the 1 cup of cheese and keep whisking until the cheese is melted and the sauce is formed.
Mix this sauce over the pasta and serve with additional cheese topping.
