Butter 2 Tablespoon
Flour 2 Tablespoon
Salt 1/2 Teaspoon
Ground black pepper 1 Dash
Milk 3/4 Cup (12 tbs)
Finely shredded cheddar cheese 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs)
Sour cream 8 Ounce
Uncooked macaroni 1 1/2 Cup (24 tbs) , cooked, drained (use ½ teaspoon salt in the boiling water)
Paprika 1 Dash (to sprinkle on top) (Optional)



1. In a medium-sized saucepan, melt butter. Add flour, salt, and ground black pepper. Stir well.

2. Gradually stir in milk and cheddar cheese. Stir, and cook over medium heat until thickened and smooth.

3. Add sour cream and cooked macaroni into the saucepan. Mix well and heat mixture through, but do not boil. Add more milk if the sauce is too thick.


4. In a nice serving bowl, transfer the macaroni and sprinkle with a dash of paprika.
