There is something about the cheesy goodness that just makes your day that much better. Although, I would not recommend eating this everyday...
4 Cheese Baked Macaroni
1/2 lb. whole wheat macaroni
3 T. unsalted butter
3 T. flour
1/2 t. pepper
2 1/2 c. milk
1/2 c. sour cream
1/2 c. shaved parmesan
1 c. shredded cheddar
1/2 c. crumbled bleu cheese
1 c. cubed 2% Velveeta
In a pot cook macaroni until al dente. In a large saucepan, melt butter. Sift in flour and stir with a whisk for a few minutes, until smooth and bubbling (this eliminates the flour taste). Gradually pour in milk, while whisking, and bring up to a simmer, add pepper. Add cheese and sour cream and stir until melted. Mix with cooked noodles and pour into baking dishes.
Bake at 350 degrees for 30 minutes or until bubbly.
As you see, I set aside two ramekins for the next night's dinner. Can't beat mac-n-cheese two nights in a row! And of course, you can substitute any cheeses your little heart desires.
In other happenings, we are getting ready to put a new roof on our house this weekend - BY OURSELVES. We have a group of friends coming over to help and I've been instructed to be on standby for any "errand runs" and meal prep.
I'm going to have many hungry boys to feed! Thankfully we are going the easy route with cold meat sandwiches, burgers on the grill, maidrites, and of course a few home baked sweets by myself.
Which reminds me - tune in tomorrow for Apple Taffy Pizza!
