Macaroni and Cheese, Please!

Are you in the mood for comfort food too?  That's so cool that we can be twinners!

Sometimes you just need a big plate of carbs, right?  I have eaten this macaroni and cheese a thousand times and yet never made it myself.  For some reason, watching my dad make it, I always thought it was much more involved than it really is.

It really is a perfect weeknight dinner, especially when you are needing a little taste of home!

Recipe from Dad!
2 Tbsp. corn starch
1 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. pepper
2 1/2 c. milk
2 Tbsp. butter
2 c. shredded cheddar cheese
8 oz. elbow pasta, cooked 7 minutes and drained

1.  Prepare your ingredients (a.k.a. shred your cheese).
2.  In a medium saucepan combine first 3 ingredients, stir in milk.  Add butter; stirring constantly, bring to a boil over medium heat and boil 1 minute.  Remove from heat.
3.  Stir in 1 3/4 c. cheese until melted.
4.  Add elbows.  Pour into greased 2 quart casserole dish.
5.  Sprinkle with reserved cheese and bread crumbs over top.
6.  Bake uncovered at 375˚ for 25 minutes or until lightly browned.
7.  Serve it up with some peas...preferably mixing it all together on your plate!
