- Preheat the oven to 350 degrees, and spray a 2-quart baking dish with nonstick cooking spray; set aside.
- Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook noodles to al dente, per package directions (about 10-12 minutes). Drain, return to the pot, and set aside.
- Meanwhile, melt the butter in a large nonstick skillet and then whisk the flour in. Whisk mixture and allow to cook for about a minute.
- Slowly whisk in the milk until fully incorporated, bring to a low simmer and allow to thicken slightly. Add in 2 cups of the shredded cheese, and salt and pepper (start with about 1 tsp each, or less if you typically like lighter seasoning). Once the cheese has fully melted into the sauce, taste and adjust the seasonings if desired.
- Pour the cheese sauce over the drained noodles in the pot, and stir gently to combine. Pour the macaroni and cheese mixture into the prepared baking dish, sprinkle remaining shredded cheese over the top. Bake in the oven for 20-30 minutes, until casserole is lightly bubbly and cheese is fully melted and lightly golden.
- Allow to set for 5-10 minutes, then serve.
