Noodles and Company Mac n Cheese

There's something about Noodles and Company's mac n cheese. It's so simple, yet so tasty. My go to comfort food. I decided I had to try it at home, it is cheaper and I am on a budget! This is probably one of the easiest meals I have ever made..okay my husband has ever made, but still very easy! Boil the noodles, make the roux, add the cheese, then add to the noodles and you have dinner! I usually get parmesean crusted chicken and a roll with my dinner so next time I think I'll add on the chicken and make some naan. Mmm :)

Wisconsin Mac n Cheese
1/2 lb macaroni noodles
1/8c butter
1/8c flour
1 1/2c milk
salt to taste
1 1/2c shredded monterey jack or shredded cheddar (I used a combination of both)

Cook macaroni noodles and drain. Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat, add flour and whisk to make a roux. Whisk in milk and let thicken slightly. Add salt to taste. Add cheese to milk mixture and stir until melted. Pour over noodles, and top with cheese and pepper.The sauce should not overwhelm the pasta so be careful not to add too much. Enjoy!
