This is a classic take on a creamy homemade macaroni and cheese. With a thick and velvety cheese sauce, its great for the whole family. Makes a great side dish or why not make it the main course. Sometimes you just need a comforting bowl of macaroni. My kids love macaroni any time of day. Mix things up and add some extra ingredients such a broccoli, chicken or bacon.


4 Cups Elbow Noodles

4 Cups Milk 4 Cups Shredded Medium Cheddar Cheese (plus extra for top)

3 tbsp Corn Starch

1/8 tsp Cayenne Pepper

1/8 tsp Mustard Powder

Dash of Worcestershire sauce

Pinch Salt and Pepper (check taste and add more as desired)

- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil, then cook elbow noodles just until al Dante.

- Add cold milk to a pot and stir in your corn starch. Turn heat on to medium heat and add remaining ingredients. Stir constantly until thickened.

- Remove from heat and gently stir in your shredded cheese until melted.

TIP: do not add your cheese with your pot over the heat or your cheese sauce will become gritty.

- In a large rectangular baking dish, add your noodles and cheese sauce and stir it all together. Top the noodles with an extra helping of cheese.

- Place in the oven under the broiler just to melt the cheese.

- Serve hot.
