Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

I have a confession to make. I LOVE macaroni and cheese straight from the box. I really love it. Although, I am a bit of a Kraft Macaroni and Cheese snob, I have discovered that most people WAY overcook the noodles, turning it into something I am not sure anybody could love. ANYWAY, since I really love Kraft Macaroni and Cheese, I have never really felt the need to make it from scratch, until I found this. Now, I love both and we have double the macaroni and cheese around here.

macaroni- cooked to packaged specifications
1 stick butter
4 heaping tablespoons of flour
3 cups milk
1/2 cup- cup shredded cheese

Melt the butter in a pot. Add the flour and whisk together, letting them mix for a minute. Then whisk in the milk. After this is mixed, add the cheese, whisking so the cheese will melt. You can add as much or as little cheese as you want. I typically like to add cheese until the sauce starts taking on an orange tint. You could also make this with any other shredded cheese you have on hand. Mix the noodles into the sauce and serve. Do you make macaroni from the box or from scratch?
