Making Homemade Mac and Cheese at Your Apartment near The Villages, FL

Macaroni and cheese is the quintessential comfort food. With the mixture of creamy cheese and pasta, it’s the perfect meal for a chilly winter night or when you’ve had a bad day and need the comfort of a delicious meal to soothe you.

To make homemade mac and cheese at your apartment near The Villages, Florida, here are the ingredients you will need:

• Elbow macaroni, 8 ounces uncooked

• Sharp cheddar cheese, 2 cups shredded

• Parmesan cheese, ½ cup shredded

• Milk, 3 cups • Butter, ¼ cup

• All-purpose flour, 2½ tablespoons

• Butter, 2 tablespoons

• Bread crumbs, ½ cup

• Paprika, 1 pinch

First, cook the macaroni according to the package directions, drain, and pour into a casserole dish. Set aside. Then, in a saucepan, melt ¼ cup of butter over medium heat. Stir in flour and then add the milk slowly, stirring constantly. Next, stir in both types of cheese and cook over low heat until the cheese has melted and the sauce is thick. Pour this mixture over the macaroni and stir well. Set aside. Melt two tablespoons of butter in a saucepan, add breadcrumbs, and brown. Spread this mixture over the macaroni and cheese and sprinkle the entire dish with paprika. Bake for 30 minutes at 350 degrees, and serve.
