You will need:
2 T butter
2 T flour
1 1/4 C milk
1/2 small block velveeta
1/2 bag shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 lb small short pasta (elbow, shells, bow-tie . . .)
For seasoning you will need:
2 T worchestershire sauce
1 Tsp nutmeg
2 Tsp ground mustard
1 T black pepper
salt to taste
In a stock pot, melt the butter over medium heat:
Cook, stirring with wooden spoon, 2 minutes to form a thick blonde roux.
Add milk and whisk.
(Why I have a wooden spoon in the picture, I have NO idea.)
Continue to cook over medium heat until the mixture thickens and coats the back of your wooden spoon:
|Run your finger through the mix. If it stays separate, it's done!|
Remove from heat and mix in cheddar cheese and velveeta:
|Cutting up your Velveeta into smaller chunks will help it melt quicker.|
At this point, add your seasonings.
When cheese is melted add your cooked pasta:
Mix well and serve hot!
*Note - this is NOT necessarily a "healthy" food - I used all 2% dairy products and whole grain white pasta, so it can be a little healthier if you wish*
