Recipe Alert: Macaroni & Cheese

There are so many recipes for macaroni & cheese out there that it's hard to choose one. This recipe is very simple and lends itself to lots of add-ons. Have fun!

1 lb elbow macaroni
2 tbsp. butter/margarine
2 cups milk
2 tbsp. flour
1 tsp. salt

8 oz cheddar cheese
1/2 cup cooked ham
1/2 cup frozen peas

Cook the pasta until al dente.
Melt butter in pan, add flour and mix until all flour is mixed in.
Add salt and onion powder to pan.

Turn up heat and add cheese.
Stir until cheese melts.
Add pasta to pan.

I usually make the entire pound for my boyfriend and I and we keep the leftovers for lunch during the week.
