Mac and Cheese

I have had a request for my recipe for Mac and cheese. It is really simple but our family loves it!

1 pound cooked macaroni noodles
1 cup sharp cheddar cheese shredded
1 cup jack cheese shredded
1 cup pepper jack cheese shredded
1/2 cup butter
3 tablespoons flour
1 to 1 cups milk
pepper to taste

in a large dutch oven melt butter on med high temp. let Butter brown slightly (that gives it a slightly nutty taste) whisk in flour and continue to whisk until there are no lumps. let cook for about a minute or two to cook out the floury taste. Whisk in milk about 1/2 cup at a time. As the flour absorbs the milk it will start to thicken quickly so keep the milk in hands reach. continue to add the milk slowly, whisking well each time until it is a smooth consistency, can coat the back of a spoon. Turn off the heat and with a wooden spoon stir in the cheese, one cup at a time. continue to stir until all cheese is melted and mixture is smooth again. Add macaroni and stir to coat. Pour mixture into a well greased 13x9 pan. You can top with bread crumbs, crushed potato chips, crushed corn flakes or more cheese. Bake at 375 for 30 to 45 mins or until crusty on top.

Well there it is I hope you like it.
