Following quite a while of looking, I at long last found the best velvety macintosh and cheddar formula around. Super cheddary, rich, and effectively made on the stove top in less than 30 minutes; This will be showing up on our family table.

On the off chance that you have a heartbeat, I accept you adore rich macintosh and cheddar. The topic of 'Why we cherish it' is a genuine nature versus sustain banter.

The Nature side says that all individuals are brought into the world with an instinctual drive to devour liquefied cheddar, the most noteworthy structure being (obviously) Creamy Homemade Mac and Cheese.

While the Nurture side would contend that this affection dependence is likely acquired from our folks pushing boxed macintosh and cheddar on us like road merchants from the time that we could hold a fork. Shockingly, we adored each chomp.

  • 8 ounces (2 cups) sturdy macaroni noodles *see note

For the bechamel sauce:

  • 1/3 cup unsalted butter
  • 1/3 cup all purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground mustard powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper (optional)
  • 1 1/2 cups packed sharp aged cheddar cheese *see note
  • 1/2 cup shredded Pecorino Romano cheese
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


  1. Cook the macaroni noodles in a large pot of salted water according to package directions, draining them a minute before the "al dente" cooking time.
  2. Heat the milk in the microwave or on the stove top until very hot but not boiling. 
  3. In a heavy bottomed sauce pot, melt the butter over medium heat. Whisk in the flour and continue to cook, whisking constantly, until the mixture turns a light brown color, about 3-4 minutes. Remove from heat. Slowly start pouring in the milk, whisking constantly. The mixture will look very thick at first and will thin out as you whisk in the remainder of the milk. Return the pot to the heat and cook the mixture, whisking continuously, another 3-5 minutes or until thickened. The sauce should coat the back of the spoon. If you put a little bit on a spoon and run your finger through it, the line from your finger should remain. Stir in the salt, garlic powder, and ground mustard. 
  4. Return the remaining sauce to the stove. Over low heat, add the cheeses, stirring to melt. If you're unable to melt in all the cheese, add a bit more milk, a Tablespoon at a time, until the cheese is melted completely. Stir the sauce into the pasta until your desired level of creaminess is reached. I find I use all of the sauce sometimes and sometimes I have a little leftover. Taste and season with salt and pepper if needed or simply serve hot with a sprinkle of parsley.
