Melanie's Quick Mac n Cheese

Boil the elbow pasta as usual.

In a separate pan make a "rue" by melting 1/3 cup butter with just a bit less than 1/3 cup of flour till it's a thick paste. Add in about 1 1/2 cups of milk and warm until it's combined, melted and thickening.

Then add in 1 cup of shredded cheddar cheese or 3-4 cheese slices. If any clumps are there just take them out with a fork.

Add in macaroni stir and eat immediately or you can put in buttered casserole dish and then top with more shredded cheese and bake till cheese melts. I tend to use less cheese this way.

You can also add tuna to the roux (white sauce), and serve over toast or rice.
