my fave mac & cheese

here is my favorite homemade mac & cheese recipe ever! 

what you need...

2 Tbsp Corn starch
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp dry mustard
1/4 tsp pepper
2 1/2 cups milk
2 Tbsp butter
2 cups (8oz) shredded cheese
8 oz elbows, cooked 5 minutes and drained

what to do...In medium saucepan combine first 4 ingredients; stir in milk. Add butter; stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium-high heat and boil one minute.  

Remove from heat. Stir in 1 3/4 cups cheese until melted. Add elbows. Pour into greased 2 qt casserole. Sprinkle with remaining cheese.  Bake uncovered in 375 degree oven 25 minutes. Makes 4-6 servings

Trick is not to over cook the noodles! Might take more then 5 minutes, but DO NOT cook them till they are soft.  If you do not constantly stir when the milk is boiling it will burn aka taste bad.
