“I've been making this for years. The topping is optional. Add more milk, if you like the cheese sauce to be runnier. Use all the little ends of the pieces of cheese in the cheese drawer. The more the merrier. I don't use blue, swiss, or mozarella, but anything else is fair game.”

  2. Make a roux: Melt butter in saucepan. Stir in flour, slowly, until bearly browned. Stir in milk slowly, but constantly.
  3. Make it into cheese sauce: Stir in the spices. Stir in the cheese a handful at a time, adding more as the last bit melts.
  4. Carefully stir into the noodles and turn into a greased casserole for the oven. Mix together the last three ingredients for a topping and sprinkle over macaroni. Bake this at 400F for 1/2 an hour or until browned and bubbling.
