This tasty recipe is closely based on one from the new-old cookbook that I bought with my Swagbucks! My kids have been begging for a mac-and-cheese-meal and after finding this recipe and adjusting to make it fit for this big crew, I finally decided to let them have their way! In 2 T butter, sauteed one large onion, chopped. After 3 minutes, add:
1 t salt
1/4 t oregano
1/2 t black pepper
1 t dry mustard
Cook for 2 more minutes.
Add 6 cups of water and 1 box macaroni (wheat or veggie), bring to boil. Reduce heat, cover and cook for 6 minutes. Sprinkle 1/4 cup plain flour over noodles and mix well.
Add 2 cans evaporated milk and 2 1/3 cups shredded cheese.
Stir until melted and heated through.
Opt. Right before serving sprinkle with paprika and/or fold American cheese slices in half to form diamonds and lay across macaroni in serving dish.
**Served here with fresh fried squash and green peas. (topped with extra black pepper)
