Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to the boil over high heat. Cook pasta until al dente, about 8 minutes. Drain well.
Combine 50g butter, flour, milk, salt and Cheddar cheese in a large saucepan over medium heat; cook and stir until the cheese is melted and the mixture thickens, 7 to 10 minutes.
Add the macaroni and stir to coat. Pour the mixture into a 20x30cm baking dish. Mix the 50g melted butter and crushed crackers together in a bowl; scatter the cracker mixture evenly over the macaroni mixture.
Bake in preheated oven until golden brown on top, about 45 minutes.
It was lovely and cheesy just didn't like how the flour mixed with it. will try making a few adaptions. And changes to volume being used. cheese is expensive and a lot of cheese needed in the recipe - 13 Mar 2015
