After a long day of work, all we need is comfort food. Good news, it’s so easy to make some Baked Mac and Cheese at home!
Baked Mac and Cheese
750 grams of elbow macaroni, boiled to al dente
3 tablespoons of butter
3 teaspoons of flour
3 cups of whole milk

1 cup of grated quick melting cheese
Pinch of nutmeg (optional)
1/2 cup of grated mozzarella cheese for toppings (add more as desired)
- In a medium pot boil elbow macaroni into al dente doneness. Make sure it is a bit firm, not too cooked. Set aside.
- Heat saucepan using low heat. Melt butter and add in flour.
- Using a wire whisk, gradually add the milk. Mix well until milk mixture is smooth.
