      Traditional Macaroni and Cheese
      Kid Friendly - Picnics - Bake - Advance - Side Dish  

      Ingredients
      7 tablespoons unsalted butter
      1/4 cup +2 Tb all-purpose flour
      4 cups milk
      1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
      1/8 teaspoon Cayenne or to taste (I actually use Frank’s Red Hot Sauce here instead)
      1 pound elbow macaroni noodles (or mix it up using corkscrews)
      3 cups coarsely grated extra-sharp cheddar cheese (12 oz.)
      1 1/3 cups freshly grated parmesan cheese (4 oz.)
      1 cup fresh bread crumbs

      Instructions
      Preheat oven to 350°F, and butter a 3 to 4 quart gratin dish or other shallow baking pan.

      In a heavy saucepan melt 6 tablespoons butter over moderately low heat. Add flour and cook roux, whisking, 3 minutes. Add milk in a stream, whisking, and bring to a boil, whisking. Add mustard, cayenne and salt and pepper to taste and simmer sauce, whisking occasionally until thickened, about 2 minutes.

      In a kettle of salted boiling water cook macaroni until just al dente, about 7 minutes and drain well. In a large bowl stir together macaroni, sauce, cheddar and 1 cup parmesan and transfer to prepared dish.

      In a small bowl stir together bread crumbs and remaining 1/3 cup parmesan and sprinkle evenly over macaroni. Cut remaining 1 tablespoon butter into bits and scatter over topping.

      Bake macaroni in middle of oven 25 to 30 minutes or until golden and bubbling.  

      Yields: 10 Servings
