Preheat oven at 425 °F (220 °C).

In a large quantity of salted boiling water, cook pasta according to package instructions. Drain in a colander.

In a large ovenproof skillet, melt butter and add flour. Whisk together to create a roux (paste).

Add milk while stirring with the whisk. Let simmer until thickened. Gradually mix in 2 cups (500 mL) of cheese to give it time to melt. Season with salt and pepper. Add cooked macaroni, stir and warm up. Evenly spread out in skillet.
