● 1 (8 ounce) box elbow macaroni
● 1⁄4 cup butter
● 1⁄4 cup all-purpose flour
● 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
● ground black pepper to taste
● 2 cups milk
● 2 cups shredded Cheddar cheese
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally until cooked through but firm to the bite, 8 minutes. Drain.
Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir in flour, salt, and pepper until smooth, about 5 minutes. Slowly pour milk into butter-flour mixture while continuously stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbling, about 5 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese to milk mixture and stir until cheese is melted, 2 to 4 minutes.
Fold macaroni into cheese sauce until coated.
