    In 10-inch skillet, melt butter over medium heat. Using whisk, stir in flour, salt and garlic. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until mixture smells nutty and is lightly golden, stirring constantly with whisk.

    Serve with additional rosemary if desired.

  • After cooking but before adding cheese, if sauce is lumpy, either strain or add to a blender and turn on high until smooth before adding cheese.
  • For a crunchy top crust, spread macaroni and cheese in a baking dish, and place under the broiler for a few minutes, watching carefully, until golden brown.
