The best macaroni and cheese is homemade, hands down. Like the store-bought varieties, homemade mac and cheese is a one-pot meal that doesn't take a lot of time to prepare. It starts with an ooey gooey cheese sauce that is both silky in texture and assertive in flavor; it's finished by tossing that sauce with the right noodles.

1. Preheat oven to 325 degrees F and grease a 3 qt baking dish (9x13"). Set aside.

3. While water is coming up to a boil, grate cheeses and toss together to mix, then divide into three piles. Approximately 3 cups for the sauce, 1 1/2 cups for the inner layer, and 1 1/2 cups for the topping.
4. Melt butter in a large saucepan over MED heat. Sprinkle in flour and whisk to combine. Mixture will look like very wet sand. Cook for approximately 1 minute, whisking often. Slowly pour in about 2 cups or so of the milk/half and half, while whisking constantly, until smooth. Slowly pour in the remaining milk/half and half, while whisking constantly, until combined and smooth.
