The ultra creamy sauce is so easy to whip up and you can use a variety of pasta; macaroni, shells, spiral – you name it!

CREAMY MAC AND CHEESE

INGREDIENTS:

• 500 gms macaroni
• ½ cup (113 grams) unsalted butter
• ¼ cup + 2 tablespoons (53 grams) refined flour
• 5 cups (1.2 liters) full cream milk
• 3 cup cheddar cheese, shredded
• 1cup mozzarella cheese, grated
• Salt and pepper, to taste

DIRECTIONS:

1. Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the box, then drain; set aside.
2. In a large saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the flour and whisk to combine, then cook for 1 to 2 minutes, whisking constantly, until the mixture is a light golden brown color and beginning to have a nutty smell.
3. Reduce the heat to medium-low and slowly whisk in the milk until smooth. Simmer until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes, whisking occasionally.
4. Add the cheese, a handful at a time, whisking well after each addition and not adding more until the previous handful is fully melted and incorporated. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
5. Add the drained pasta to the cheese sauce and stir to combine, breaking up any clumps of macaroni.

Serve immediately. Leftovers can be stored in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 4 days.
