Homemade Macaroni and Cheese

This is a really great recipe.  Comfort food at its best.  I got the recipe from a Taste of Home cookbook.  It stays nice and creamy and doesn't dry out, even when re-heated the next day.  It's also super easy! I did change and lighten up the recipe a bit :)

3 C dry macaroni noodles or other pasta
2 Tbl light margarine or butter
2 Tbl flour
1 1/2 C milk
1/2 lb velveeta cheese(2%), cubed

-Cook pasta.  Meanwhile melt butter in saucepan.  Stir in flour until smooth.  Gradually add milk and bring to a boil.  Cook and stir until thickened.  Reduce heat and add cheese.  cook and stir until melted.  Drain the pasta and add to cheese mixture.  Stir until cooked through.  Add salt and pepper to taste.  Enjoy!
