Mac and Cheese

6 Dec

We know it’s hard to live without mac and cheese; it’s the number one shipped item to abroad students. But really, guys, a $50 box of mac and cheese? Not worth it. Try this recipe from Champlain student Jaime Berry instead. It’s almost as easy, and so much cheaper.



  • 4 tablespoons (half a stick) of butter – 4tbsp
  • 3 tablespoons flour
  • 7 ounces (about 3/4 cup + a little more)milk
  • 1 lb box of pasta
  • 16 oz (2 cups) shredded cheddar cheese


Cook pasta, set aside.

Melt butter in a sauce pan. Once melted, mix with flour – should be the consistency of paste. This is called a roux (for those of you not in Montreal, it’s pronounced “roo.”)

Add milk–approx. 2 parts milk to 1 part roux–heat and stir until well-mixed and smooth.

Slowly add in cheddar, heating and stirring, until all the cheese has melted. Add sauce to pasta.
