This has to be the kids' favorite meal. Jonah's french accent when we cook this is a tribute to Rattatoui!
Like many of my favorites, this is more of a guideline than carved in stone. Any real sous chef will probably cringe at my techniques.
Cook up half a box of pasta: 8 ounces. Drain in a colander,. While the pasta is draining, add two tablespoons of butter to the hot saucepan. Melt over medium heat. Add two tablespoons of flour and cook for a minute or two. Pour in about a cup of milk and whisk to get out the lumps. Cook on med-med high for a few minutes until sauce starts to thicken. Add a big handful of grated cheese and still until melted. Add the pasta back into the cheese sauce.
Voila! Chez de Macaroni!
