Delicious Mac & Cheese

Hey guys! Thank you for your sweet comments on my spring wreath. It was such a fun and easy project to do, it took me about 15 minutes to complete. I hope I inspired you to go make your own :) Here is the link to my wreath if you missed it yesterday. On to today's post. I wanted to share with you this delicious mac & cheese. I got this idea from one of Rachael Ray's shows and tweaked it a bit.


Ingredients:
Cavatappi Pasta
Tillamook Sharp Cheddar Cheese 
Milk 
Butter
Flour
Salt & Pepper
Dijon Mustard
Ham

 Adjust your ingredients for the amount of mac & cheese you want to make. When it's just me and my hubby we make about half of the bag. You can use any type of cheese. I have used Gruy√®re and white cheddar with this before (which is absolutely delicious just a bit pricey). Start boiling your noodles, while those are cooking, in a separate sauce pan melt a couple tablespoons of butter, add in equal amounts of flour. Whisk for a couple minutes, while whisking add in your milk ( I just eyeball this but its about a cup or so) occasionally keep whisking until it thickens up for you. When your sauce is thickened add in salt and pepper to taste, a little less than a tablespoon of dijon mustard and add in your cheese and ham. Drain noodles and add them into your cheese sauce and serve. This mac and cheese is so delicious! You have to try it. Let me know if you do. :) 

Have a great day!
