Baked mac and chz

It took me a long time to make a mac and chz recipe that I liked. Here is what I have come up with.

1 pkg of cheese ends ______Acme NEVER has cheese ends so I buy 2/3 slices each of swiss, monterey jack, sharp cheddar, american and provolone. depends on if you want more of one flavor than another.

2/3 tbsp flour

2 tbsp salted butter

sprinkle of nutmeg

about 1 cup of milk

1/2 pkg of pasta (short pasta--we use rotini or ziti or bowties whatever we have)

Cook pasta per directions on pkg

while pasta is cooking, put butter in sauce pan and allow to melt

add flour in a mound in the middle of the pan, start with 2 but if too liquidy add the rest.

allow flour to cook for about 30 secs to 1 min

then add small pieces of all the cheese (soph likes the job of making the cheese into pieces.)

add 1/2 cup of milk--if mixture is still too thick, add small amounts of milk until a desired thickness (like melted cheese whiz)

When pasta is done, mix pasta and cheese in a bowl

spray a baking pan with pam spray

add pasta and cheese mix

Bake for 25- 30 mins until slightly brown on top.
