Macaroni & Cheese

There's a gazillion recipes for mac & cheese.  This is my go to recipe.  My kids love it.  I love the leftovers--it's super thick the next day.  I have added different types of cheeses--swiss, regular cheddar, etc.

Macaroni & Cheese
1 lb pasta
3/4 cup butter
4 Tbsp flour
1 tsp salt
3 cups milk
1 lb. Velveeta
1 cup shredded cheese

Bring a large pot of water to boil and cook pasta until al dente.  Meanwhile melt butter in a large saucepan on medium low heat.  Then whisk in flour and salt.  Cook and stir for 1 minute.  Slowly whisk in milk.  Stir often and cook over medium heat until mixture becomes thick.  Add Velveeta and shredded cheese, stir until cheese melts.  

Combine cooked noodles with cheese sauce.  Bake covered at 350 for 30 minutes or heat in crock pot on low for 1 hour.
