Macaroni and Cheese
|Mac and cheese is one of those dishes that sound boring, but can be just as delicious as a “fancier” pasta dish like lasagne or pesto.|
|Directions||Preheat oven to 350 and lightly butter the baking dish.
Heat 1 T butter with 2 T milk. When bubbly, whisk in the flour, mustard, and paprika.
Keep stirring for 2 minutes, then gradually start whisking in the 1½ c milk. Simmer, stirring frequently, for 5-10 minutes, until thickened.
Add salt, pepper, and cheese, and simmer until melted.
Stir in the cooked pasta, then pour the pasta/cheese mixture into the baking dish.
Dot the top all over with small drops of sour cream, then sprinkle with bread crumbs.
Cook until brown and bubbly, about 30 minutes.
