How to cook mac and cheese

Step 1: Boil Macaroni

The macaroni should be prepared as directed on the packaging. Make sure to liberally season the boiling water with salt.

When the macaroni is boiled, drain it but do not rinse it.

Step 2: Prepare the cheese sauce

To begin, melt the butter in a heavy-bottomed pot (do not let it brown). Now stir in the flour, salt, and crushed garlic (or garlic paste). Whisk them for three to four minutes, or until you see light brown hues. Continue whisking for two to three minutes after adding the milk. A silky smooth batter is ideal. Now add the cheddar cheese, or you can add greek yoghurt or sour cream first. Keep in mind that you don’t need all of these ingredients. If you have cheese, just add it without worrying about the cream; if you have cream, remember to add it before the cheese.

Remove from the heat when the cheese sauce is silky smooth and stir in the cooked pasta. Remember, the sauce will thicken as it cools.

Your homemade mac and cheese is ready to serve. It goes well with bacon or broccoli. Or simply with a glass of wine.

How do you know if the recipe is ready?

When you make mac and cheese, it’s important to take the time to make sure that it is cooked through.

Take a fork and poke the center of the mac and cheese. If it comes out clean, it is done. If there is still some resistance, the cheese is still slightly undercooked.
