Magical Mac & Cheese

Create a truly unforgettable dinner tonight for your gang with our Magical Mac & Cheese recipe. It's loaded with tons of cheddar and baked to perfection with a crunchy topping. You'll be in heaven after just one bite.

What You'll Need:

1 pound elbow macaroni
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
2 1/2 cups milk
3 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
What To Do:

Preheat oven to 375 degrees F. Coat a 9- x 13-inch baking dish with cooking spray. In a large pot, cook macaroni according to package directions; drain and place in a large bowl.

Meanwhile, in a saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add flour, salt, and pepper; stir to mix well. Gradually add milk, bring to a boil, and cook until thickened, stirring constantly. Add Cheddar cheese and cook until cheese is melted. Pour over macaroni, add mozzarella cheese, and mix well. Spoon into prepared baking dish.

Bake 35 to 40 minutes, or until heated through and top is golden. Serve immediately.

We paired this with a delicious Caesar Salad and practically licked our plates clean!
