Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat; stir in flour. Gradually add milk, stirring constantly. Add salt and pepper to taste. Cook over medium heat just until mixture starts to boil and thicken. Add 2-1/2 cups cheese; stir until melted and smooth. Mix in macaroni; transfer to a greased 2-quart casserole dish. Top with remaining cheese.
Bake, uncovered, at 350 degrees for 30 minutes, until bubbly.
Serves 4 to 6.
