4 TBS butter
4 TBS. flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp fresh ground pepper

Directions:
Directions:
Heat oven to 375
Lightly grease a large (2-3) quart casserole
Bring large amount of water to boil and salt it:
cook pasta according to box (6-7 min.), drain

Prepare white/cheese sauce:

Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat. Blend in flour, salt and pepper. Cook over low heat, stirring until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Stir in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Slowly add the cheese by handfuls until it is cheesy enough for you. Kevin always uses more than the recipe but if you use too much the sauce will separate.

Place half the cooked,drained pasta into casserole, cover with half the sauce. Stir well. Repeat process. Sprinkle crumbs over top and dot with small chunks of butter (a process known as gilding the lily). Bake, covered, for 30 minutes. Uncover and continue to bake for 15 more mins.
