Noodles & Co Mac and Cheese

Yes you read that correctly--the ulitmate in comfort food at it's best!  I initially consider taking risks when I go to Noodles & Co--i really do-- but I inevitably always end up getting the Mac and Cheese.  And I am never disappointed.  I am huge into any variety of mac and cheese, but I think this might be my very favorite.  Creamy, flavorful, cheesy. . . heaven.


{What you need}
1 lb. elbow noodles
1/4 cup butter
1/4 cup flour
3 cups half and half
1/2 tsp salt
3 Cups Monterrey Jack (or Colby Jack)

Cook pasta according to package directions.

In large saucepan, melt butter. Stir in flour making a roux. Gradually stir in half and half whisking until thickened. Stir in salt. Remove from heat. Add cheese, stir until cheese melts. Top with fancy shredded mild cheddar cheese.

Every time I go to Noodles & Co. I think to myself, I'm going to try something new. But 85% of the time I go with the good ol' mac and cheese. You're right - it is hard to be disappointed with it. Thanks for sharing your recipe. I look forward to recreating this dish at home!
