Whisk in the flour.

Over med heat, whisk until smooth and bubbly (only about a minute).

Keep cooking and stirring until sauce is thickened– about three or four minutes.

Cut the block of cheddar into half-inch cubes.

Add drained macaroni and cubed cheddar& combine well.

Pour into a casserole sprayed with Pam.

In a small bowl, combine the remaining ingredients and sprinkle over top.
