One Pot Mac and Cheese

Like any other kid out there my child could live off of macaroni and cheese.  

The only down side to my child trying to live off of macaroni and cheese is that packaged crap. I hate it. 

This recipe takes almost as much time to cook as it does to prepare a box of the packaged stuff.

What you need:
macaroni noodles, or noodles of choice(I never measure my noodles out, I just pour it into the pot)
2Tbsp butter
1Tbsp flour
dash of Italian seasoning, garlic powder,
salt, and dry mustard
1 cup milk
1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese

Bring your water to a boil and add noodles. If your cheese needs to be shredded do it while you cook the noodles. Cook the noodles until al dente.

Once the noodles are cooked, drain the water and leave the noodles in the colander. Give the pot a quick rinse and return to the stove.

Melt your butter in the pot and then add the flour. Mix until a paste is formed.

Add your seasonings and then slowly add the milk constantly stirring. Once the milk has thickened and bubbly remove from heat. If it's too thick to your liking add a little milk and stir. 

Add your cheese, a little bit at a time, constantly mixing. When all the cheese is well mixed add your noodles. Stir to coat the noodles.
