The Perfect Comfort Food: Baked Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

October 5, 2017

What’s your favorite comfort food? I’ve always loved macaroni and cheese, but this recipe is particularly special. It’s the one we ate in Phoenix with our best buds before Owen was born and the same one we made in NYC after they made their way east. It’s super simple to make and even came in handy for me when Owen was a newborn. Scroll through for the recipe from Punch & Pastry!

Ingredients:
+ 1 box noodles
+ 1 stick butter
+ 1/2 cup flour
+ 1/4 gallon milk
+ 5 cups sharp cheddar, shredded
+ Salt to taste
+ 1 tablespoon Dijon mustard

Instructions:
+ Cook pasta and set aside.
+ In a large pot melt butter.

If you want to bake it:
