Mac & Cheese

I never used to make mac & cheese because I could never find one where the cheese texture wasn't bad or didn't separate. This one turned out great though!

Ingredients
  

  • 1 1/2 cups Vermont white cheddar shredded
  • 1/2 pound medium pasta shells, or elbow macaroni
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup milk
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot sauce optional

Instructions
 

  • Shred the cheese and set aside. It should be close to room temperature when added to the sauce.
  • Boil a large pot of water and cook according to pasta package instructions. Drain well when finished. Prepare the sauce while the water boils and the pasta cooks.
  • Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in the flour for 1 minute, until it begins to turn a light golden color.
  • Slowly whisk in the heavy cream and milk. Whisk for about 3 minutes.
  • Add the seasonings and hot sauce. Reduce heat to low. Slowly sprinkle in the shredded cheese, stirring as you do so. Whisk continuously until smooth and thickened.
  • Remove from heat. Add boiled pasta and stir to combine.
