Ingredients

  • 2½ cups fat free milk
  • 2 cups uncooked elbow macaroni (7 ounces)
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 2 cups shredded reduced fat sharp cheddar cheese

Meanwhile, heat milk and butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Gradually whisk in flour, salt and dry mustard and simmer for 1 minute, whisking occasionally.

    Can you use regular mustard if you don’t have mustard seasoning?
