Velveeta Down-Home Macaroni and Cheese

Makes one 2-quart casserole

1. Melt 3 TBSP butter in medium saucepan on medium heat. Whisk in 1/4 cup flour; cook 2 minutes stirring constantly. Gradually stir in 1 cup milk; cook until mixture boils and thickens, stirring constantly. Add 1/2 lb. (8 oz.) Velveeta cheese (cut into cubes); cook 3 minutes or util melted, stirring frequently.

2. Stir. in 2 cups cooked elbow macaroni. Spoon into 2 quart casserole lightly sprayed; sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese. Melt 1 TBSP butter; toss with 6 Ritz crackers crushed and sprinkle over casserole (I just omitted the butter and sprinkled the macaroni and cheese with Italian breadcrumbs).

Bake 20 minutes at 350 degrees or until heated through.

*This is a nice and cheesy meal, but less cheesy than the one on the Velveeta package.
