Basic bechamel is made of milk, thickened with flour and butter; add grated cheese to create Mornay sauce -- the key to creamy, crowd-pleasing mac and cheese. This recipe is adapted from the "Martha Stewart's Cooking School" cookbook.

    This MUST be eaten immediately...so sad! I reheated in microwave (small portion for breakfast!) and the sauce was no where near as creamy as when it was first completed. I also added another 8 oz of pasta...it was too saucy for my hubby! This is very tasty and rich, but I will find another "Martha" recipe ... she has plenty!

    How many servings does this recipe make? Can you substitute non-whole milk?

      I doubled up on the pasta...used a pound instead of 8 oz...it made a very large serving...almost filled my vintage Tupperware 12 cup mixing bowl!
