Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

 We love macaroni and cheese. But, trying to be more health conscious, I came up with this version. Everyone loved it!!
 This cheese sauce is not very hard to make and is so creamy.

The steam is still coming off this freshly made dish. 

For the cheese sauce:

2 Tablespoons butter or any butter substitute
1/4 to 1/2 cup of flour any kind
1 to 2 cup milk, it depends on  how thick or thin you would like your cheese sauce to be ( I used unsweetened almond milk) 
1 teaspoon sea salt
1/2 cup shredded cheddar or any cheese substitute
fresh ground pepper to taste

In a medium sauce pan heat the butter until melted on medium high. Add the flour and stir until you have a thick crumbly mixture. 
Add the milk slowly to your crumbly mixture and continue stirring (I use a whisk) until you have a thick and creamy sauce,  you don't want to have any lumps in your cheese sauce :) Add your sea salt and shredded cheddar and stir until melted. 
Pour over any type of cooked noodles; mix and season with fresh black pepper .
