	  Amount  Measure       Ingredient -- Preparation Method
	--------  ------------  --------------------------------
	  1/4      cup           butter or margarine
	  1/4      cup           flour
	   3       cups          milk
	   1       teaspoon      salt
	   1/2     teaspoon      hot-pepper sauce
	   1/2     teaspoon      ground cumin (optional)
	   1/2     pound         sharp Cheddar cheese -- shredded
	   4       ounces        pimientos -- diced
	   4       ounces        green chiles -- diced
	   1       cup           black ripe olive slices
	1. In a 2-quart saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Stir in flour
	   and cook,  stirring, until mixture is smooth and bubbly. Remove from
	   heat; whisk in milk.  Return to heat and bring to a boil, stirring
	   constantly; mixture will thicken.  Boil and stir 1 minute. Stir in salt,
	   hot pepper sauce, and cumin (if used).
	2. Remove pan from heat; add cheese, pimiento, green chiles, and olives, 
	   stirring until cheese melts. Adjust seasonings to taste.
	3. To serve: Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. In boiling salted water,
	   cook 1  pound elbow macaroni, following package directions. Drain; toss
	   with sauce.  Adjust seasonings if necessary. Pour into a 2-quart
	   casserole; top with an  additional 1/2 pound sharp Cheddar cheese,
	   shredded. Cover; bake until mixture  is heated through and cheese is
	   melted, 15 to 20 minutes.
	* Timesaver Tip: Sauce can be made up to 6 hours ahead, covered, and 
	  refrigerated, or it can be frozen. To freeze, spoon into a freezer
	  container,  cover, label, and freeze at 0 degrees F up to 2 months. To
	  serve, defrost sauce  15 to 20 minutes in microwave oven on Defrost
	  setting, stirring several times,  or thaw in refrigerator 8 to 24 hours.
	  Gently warm sauce in a saucepan or  microwave oven on 50% power until
	  warmed through, about 3 minutes, whisking  frequently and vigorously to
	  bring it to a creamy consistency.
