Submitted by: KDELLASEGA

Introduction

So good...just like mom's So good...just like mom's
Number of Servings: 6

Ingredients

    2 tbsp margarine
    2 tbsp whole wheat flour
    2 c 2% milk
    2 c shredded cheddar cheese
    2 c macaroni or penne pasta, cooked
    1/5 c crushed saltine crackers
    1/2 tsp salt
    dash black pepper

Directions

1. Preheat oven to 375
2. Cook pasta per package directions (I like to take mine out a few seconds before it is really done because it still cooks in the oven).
3. Melt margarine over med-high heat
4. Add flour and mix until brown and dough like (usually a minute or two).
5. Add milk and bring to a boil. Cook 2 minutes and add the cheese. Stir until thick and bubbly.
6. Place pasta in a casserole dish (I spritz mine with cooking spray first) and our cheese sauce over top.
7. Bake for 20 minutes. Add cracker crumbs and bake for 5-7 minutes longer uncovered.
