Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

Mmm.  That is what my kids say whenever I tell them we are having homemade Mac and Cheese.  They seriously love this kind more than the "real" kind from a box!!  I would hope so!  This is such a simple recipe, and delicious! 

Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

3 C. medium shell macaroni, uncooked
4 slices bacon, chopped
2 Tbsp. flour
2 C. milk
2 C. shredded cheddar cheese
1/4 C. grated Parmesan cheese

Heat oven to 350*

Cook macaroni as directed on package.  Cook bacon in a large saucepan.  Remove bacon and save drippings in the pan.  Add flour to drippings, cook and stir until bubbly.  Gradually pour in milk.  Bring to a boil, stirring constantly; cook and stir 3-5 minutes or until thickened.
Stir in 1 C. cheddar cheese and Parmesan; cook and stir until melted, add bacon and macaroni; mix well.  Pour into a 1 1/2 -2 qt casserole dish, top with remaining cheddar.  Bake 20 minutes.


This goes great with some of Michelle's homemade rolls and a spinach salad.
