My Favorite Macaroni & Cheese Recipe
  • 1 lb macaroni elbows or shells (I love shells because they hold the cheese)
  • 6 tbsp unsalted butter
  • 1-1/2 tbsp all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups half and half
  • 16 oz sharp cheddar, cubed
  • a dash of salt (a little will do, the worcestershire and hot cause are plenty salty)
  • ½ tsp worcestershire sauce
  • a few dashes hot pepper sauce
  1. Boil macaroni according to package directions. Drain.
  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in medium saucepan. Add flour and stir until smooth. Add half and half. Heat on medium until sauce comes to a low boil and thickens slightly.
  3. Remove saucepan from heat and add cheese cubes, salt, worcestershire sauce, and hot pepper sauce.
  4. Pour over macaroni.
