Dry macaroni (12-16 oz.)
4 cups milk
shredded sharp cheddar (I made with medium)
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/2 c margarine
1/2 cup flour/cornstarch
Cook macaroni, drain. Alternate layers of macaroni, cheddar, and cottage cheese in greased 2 quart pan. Starting with macaroni and ending w/cheese.
Melt butter in pan. Stir in flour to make smooth paste. Gradually blend in milk. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly. Cook about 2 minutes until thick. Add salt and pepper. (Be sure to mix it in well so you don't get pepper clumps!) Pour sauce over mac and cheese. Bake 375 degrees for 30-35 minutes.
