4 cups milk
6 T. butter, melted
8 T. flour
1/2 t. salt
6 cups cooked noodles
3-4 cups grated cheese (I use a combo of white Cheddar and medium/sharp Cheddar)
1. Make a roux: melt butter in saucepan on medium-high heat. Add flour and stir quickly with a wooden spoon until smooth.
2. Add milk, one cup at a time, stirring constantly with whisk. Allow mixture to thicken before adding the next cup of milk, being careful not to allow it to burn. If mixture is not thickening, then add more flour.
3. In a 9x13 pan, layer the noodles first, then the cream sauce, then the cheese. Do 2-3 layers. Bake at 350 degrees, until cheese is melted and slightly brown.
Optional: Top with grated parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs before baking.
Recommended: Serve with salad and applesauce.
