Macaroni and Cheese

I never really use any certain measurements for this recipe.  The more margarine/butter you use in the beginning, the more sauce you will make.  Try this one yourself.  Very easy.

Cheddar Cheese (I like sharp cheddar)
Cooked Macaroni Noodles (follow package for instructions)

This will make enough for 2 or 3 people.

Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a large bowl in the microwave.
Tablespoon by tablespoon, add flour to melted butter and mix until butter has dissolved all of the flour and it has become thick.
Add 1/2 cup of milk and whisk until the flour mixture is dissolved.
Put into the microwave for 1 minute or until mixture begins to thicken.
Remove from microwave and add another 1/2 cup of milk, whisk until combined, and return to microwave.
Heat for one minute or until mixture is thick.
Keep adding milk and heating until mixture is desired consistency, but do not turn into soup!
Grate and add as much or as little cheese as you like. 
Mix in cheese, return to microwave, and cheese is melted and can be mixed into the sauce.
Place noodles into the sauce and mix until noodles are coated. 
Put noodles with sauce into a casserole dish and cover with grated cheese.
Place in over for 30 minutes or until cheese is melted and starting to bubble.
