  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook elbow macaroni in the boiling water, stirring occasionally, until tender yet firm to the bite, about 8 minutes.

  2. Meanwhile, melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Stir in flour until mixture is smooth. Slowly add half-and-half, whisking as it is poured in. Stir until sauce thickens slightly, about 3 minutes. Add Cheddar cheese, salt, Worcestershire sauce, mustard, pepper, and turmeric, whisk to combine.

  3. Drain macaroni and add to the cheese sauce. Stir until evenly coated.

Recipe Note

The movie \"Home Alone\" served as inspiration to this macaroni and cheese. Although it says it's meant for one, it will serve two if you're feeling generous!
