While it's heating, prepare the cheese sauce. For the cheese sauce: In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and continue to whisk and cook for about 2 minutes. Very slowly add the milk, a little at a time, whisking constantly. Once all the milk has been added, cook, stirring frequently until the sauce thickens, about 10 minutes.
Don't rush this step. The mixture will not be thick, but will noticeably thicken after minutes of cooking. Remove the saucepan from the heat. Add the cheese, salt, chili powder and garlic powder. Stir until the cheese is melted and all the ingredients are incorporated, about 3 minutes.
If the cheese isn't melted completely after about 3 minutes, you can put the pan back on low heat and stir until it is melted. Set aside for a minute. When the pasta water is boiling, add the macaroni and cook for 2 minutes less than the package directions indicate. The noodles will finish cooking in the sauce in the oven. When the pasta is cooked, drain and immediately rinse well with cold water.
Make sure your pasta is well drained. Add the cooked pasta and to the cheese sauce and mix gently, but thoroughly.
It might look like too much sauce or too little pasta, but trust me, it will all be good in the end. Spoon or ladle the mixture into a prepared baking dish or individual dishes. Sprinkle the top of each with a bit of additional grated sharp cheddar cheese you don't need a lot here, as there is plenty in the sauce , then sprinkle with the chipotle chili powder.

Mac and Cheese Recipe
By Gail Richards. Share Share this with. Method Cook the macaroni in a large saucepan of boiling salted water for 8—10 minutes. Meanwhile, preheat the grill to hot. This is almost identical to our fave mac and cheese recipe except this recipe uses a lot more butter than mine which makes this one quite superior to mine, haha! Love it! I think people would be amazed how easy it is to make a homemade mac and cheese like this with virtually little more effort put forth than making the box version.
So true, Lori — the homemade kind takes virtually the same amount of time as the boxed kind and with such a better result!

I love all mac and cheese, box, stove top, oven baked, give me it all! This looks like a winner, yum! You can never have enough…I just want to eat the cheese sauce by a spoon! This is almost the same way that I make it. I only use 3 tblsp butter and 3 tblsp flour with 2 cups of milk, though. Sometimes I use an 8 oz brick of cheddar, sometimes I add more…depends on my mood.

Also, when I have it, a pinch or two of ground mustard kicks up the flavor without tasting mustardy. I may have to try this with your proportions just to see. I may make this tonight! This is so awesome. Pour the macaroni right into the pan you used for the sauce. We make ours in much the same way but use half Monterey Jack and half Muenster.

Creamy and […]. I also would never personally use pre-shredded cheese. They put cellulose on the shreds to stop it from sticking together and I hate that. I love putting spinach and artichokes in my mac and cheese. Or hamburger mac and cheese with lettuce, tomatoes, pickles and lettuce on top. Oh yeah, saw someone else mention ground mustard too…I do that too. Definitely makes a difference. Love the blog!
