    1 pound spaghetti
    1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
    1/2 cup all-purpose flour
    4 cups (1 quart) milk
    6 cups (24 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
    1/2 teaspoon dry mustard

In a soup pot, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and set aside in colander.
In the same pot, melt butter over medium heat then stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened, stirring frequently. Add cheese, dry mustard, salt, and pepper and stir for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
Add spaghetti and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through, stirring constantly. Serve immediately.

Yum!  We love mac n cheese around here.  I can def make it in a big pot and eliminate all the extra steps of making the cheese sauce, baking in the ove, etc.

I've used different kinds of noodles when making it, although i've never used spaghetti.  I'm going to try this, maybe i'll cook it this week-end.

 Using spaghetti is an awesome idea, I think my kids would really like that.
