Macaroni and Cheese

Sauce: 1 cup of milk, 1 1/2 cup of water with 2 tbls of flour blended to make thickener, 1 tbls olive oil, 1 lb of shredded cheese, 1/4 cup parmesan cheese, 1 tbls Coleman's mustard, minced sweet red pepper, 10 to 20 peas.
Pre-heat the oven to 350 degrees. Boil 1 lb of pasta (elbow is traditional, but small penna is rather nice). Drain the pasta well. Add to a large casserole dish and pour the sauce evenly over the top. Cover and bake for 15 minutes. Uncover and bake for 5 more minutes. 
Pull from the oven and let it rest (set) for 10 minutes before serving. A splash of Frank's Red Hot Sauce on our mac & cheese is a household favorite, I recommend giving it a taste.
Served with green beans (another family favorite) and a nice big mixed herb salad makes for a very tasty dinner!
