Homemade Mac & Cheese

 
Ever since I can remember Mac and Cheese has been my favorite meal. I loved even the fake cheese in it. Well I decided to up my A game and make some from scratch.This is my personal version of Mac and Cheese! Enjoy!
 
Ingredients:
14 oz. package Macaroni
1 stick of butter
5 tablespoons of flour
1 cup of milk
2 1/2 cups of sharp cheddar
1/2 cup of parmesan 
salt and pepper to taste
Italian breadcrumbs
 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.

In a large pot of boiling, salted water cook the pasta to al dente.

While the pasta is cooking, in a separate pot, melt the butter. Whisk in the flour, milk  and keep it moving for about five minutes. Make sure it’s free of lumps. Slowly add 2 cups of sharp cheddar and 1/2 cup of parmesan, stirring ensuring there are not lumps. Add salt and pepper to taste.Fold the macaroni into the mix and pour into a 2-quart casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese.

Melt the butter in a saute pan and toss the bread crumbs to coat. Top the macaroni with the bread crumbs. Bake for 30 minutes. Remove from oven and rest for five minutes before serving.
