This is an incredibly simple, basic cheese sauce made with butter, flour, milk and cheese. It’s super thick and cheesy, which basically equates to perfection when you’re talking about macaroni and cheese.  I am sure kids would love to have this for evening snack or dinner.

2. Heat heavy bottom pan with butter. When butter melts, add all purpose flour and mix with a whisk.

3. Add milk and pepper gradually mixing with the whisk and mix to form a smooth sauce. As it get cooks,the sauce becomes thicker. Add cheese and mix well until the cheese melts. Do it medium or low heat.

4. Do not let the sauce boil. See the consistency, it should be too thick or thin.  When the sauce is ready, mix it with the cooked pasta and spread crushed red chilly on the top.
