Macaroni & Cheese - Easy and Cheesy

“If you are among the many who can't seem to get the hang of making a roux for a bechamel sauce, then this is the Mac & Cheese recipe for you. Couldn't be easier, and just as good as the old standby method. I have made a few alterations to the ingredients, but the method is the same. I believe it came from Southern Living, but I can never be sure :). Note: I use Old Cheddar. Sharp would work well also.”
