Feed the kids (or your inner child). Nobody in any case is ever disappointed with this gratin of macaroni with a cheese sauce.
Cook the macaroni pasta in salted water according to the packet directions until al dente. Drain and rinse with cold water to stop it cooking further.
Heat the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. After a few minutes, when bubbles start to form, add the flour. Stir constantly while cooking the mixture until it starts to turn a light brown. Add the evaporated milk slowly while continuing to stir. Mix in the mustard and salt. Continue stirring and cooking for another few minutes until smooth and thick. Add the milk and cheese and stir until the cheese is melted. Turn off the heat and add the cooked macaroni to the sauce.
