Baked Macaroni and Cheese


Today I figured out that double majoring, being a full time student and working a job all at the same time is something in my future like next year and this idea has been a bit overwhelming and I figured that when I'm stressed its always good to make something comforting such as good old homemade macaroni and its just what I did.
1 pound of macaroni
2 tablespoons of butter
2 tablespoons of flour
2 cups of milk
1 pound of sliced Cheddar
2 tablespoons of Parmesan cheese

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees. Bring large saucepan of salted water to a boil. Add macaroni and boil for 7 to 10 minutes. pour macaroni into a colander and drain.
Melt butter in same saucepan over medium heat. Add flour and stir constantly until mixture starts to bubble. Add 1/2 cup of milk and stir until smooth. Add remaining milk and stir for another 10 to 15 minutes or until it boils. Remove pan from heat and add the Cheddar and stir until melted. Add macaroni and stir until combined. Place in a large baking dish and sprinkle with Parmesan cheese. Bake a 350 for 25 to 30 minutes or until bubbly.

This is my all time favorite dish.
