<p>You can never go wrong with macaroni and cheese, an American favorite that has been gracing our tables for decades. We’ve created this recipe to include just the right amount of smooth Sargento® Shredded Mild Cheddar Cheese with a rich flavor that makes the perfect partner for tender macaroni.</p>

  1. Melt butter in medium saucepan over medium heat. Cook onion, if desired, in butter 5 minutes or until tender. Stir in flour, salt and pepper. Gradually add milk and cook, stirring occasionally, until thickened.
  2. Remove from heat. Add 1-1/2 cups cheese and stir until cheese is melted. Combine cheese sauce with cooked macaroni. Pour into 1-1/2-quart casserole; top with remaining cheese. Bake in preheated 350°F oven 30 minutes or until bubbly and cheese is lightly browned.

I need to tweak it a little more . My picky wife enjoyed it and she doesn't really like anything. I can do better. This was a good foundation.

This is the best recipe! It is as close to my grandmother's Mac & Cheese recipe as i have found in over 30 years of hunting. I could have eaten the whole pan all by myself it was so good. Thank you Sargento cooks you hit the ball out of the park with this recipe!

My husband is a very fussy eater. His father was actually a cheese maker. I made this recipe for him and he loved it. He asked that I make it again soon!
