  • Total Time: 30 minutes
  • Yield: 12 1x


Units Scale
  • 16 ounces elbow macaroni
  • 1/4 cup salted butter
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 1 cup cream
  • 1/2 cup whole milk
  • 3/4 cup shredded cheddar
  • 3/4 cup shredded parmesan
  • 1 cup shredded romano cheese
  • salt and pepper to your taste for the sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt for the macaroni
  • extra shredded cheese


  1. First of all, preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Then, bring a large pot of water to a boil with salt.
  2. Boil noodles until al dente, drain, and set aside. Also, store about 1/2 cup of pasta water in case you need to thin up the cheese sauce.
  3. Now, for the cheese sauce, melt butter in a large saucepan over medium heat.
  4. Next, whisk in the flour and mix continuously for about 3-5 minutes over low heat. 
  5. Slowly pour in the cream and whole milk and stir the whole time until it starts to thicken.
  6. Next, mix in the combination of cheeses until it starts to melt and become creamy. Season with salt and pepper to taste. 
  7. If the sauce becomes too thick, thin it with a little bit of stored water.
  8. Finally, mix in the macaroni noodles.
  9. Now, pour the mixture into a large baking dish. 
  10. Top with the additional shredded cheddar cheese. 
  11. Cook it for five minutes. 
  12. Finally, remove the mac and cheese from the oven and mix together so crispy cheese on top is incorporated throughout the dish.
