  • 2 cups elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 teaspoon oil
  • 3 tablespoon butter
  • 2 tablespoon all purpose flour
  • 3/4 th cup milk
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 cup sharp cheddar cheese
  • Salt to taste


  • Add oil to a pot of boiling salted water. Add the macaroni and cook according to the directions in the package. (This took the longest time for me - around 15-20 minutes. Keep checking every couple of minutes past the 10 minute mark. You don't want your macaroni mushed from over cooking.)
  • In a wok, melt butter and add the flour and over medium heat, stir it for 5 minutes. Add milk and cook it for 2-3 minutes until the sauce has thickened. Turn off the gas. Add cheese,salt and pepper and mix well.
  • Add the cooked macaroni and stir well.
  • Serve hot and garnished it with cheese.
