INGREDIENTS - 4 servings
1 Package penne pasta or Pappardelle or similar pasta
2 Tablespoons all-purpose flour
1 Cup whole milk
lb aged cheddar cheese
lb cheddar cheese
lb Gruyere cheese
Teaspoon sea salt
Teaspoon black pepper ground
2 Tablespoons unsalted butter
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
In a bowl, combine all of the grated cheese and set aside.
Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Generously salt the boiling water. Cook the pasta, stirring occasionally to prevent sticking, until al dente, according to the package instructions. Drain the pasta into a 9”x12” baking dish.
Meanwhile, in a small saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and once melted, add the flour. Cook flour and butter approximately 2 mintues or until the mixture turns a brown-chestnut color, being sure not to burn the butter mixture
Add milk, half of the grated cheese mixture, salt and pepper and continue stirring until the sauce thickens, approximately 5-7 minutes
Pour the cheese sauce over the past and stir to combine. Spread the pasta evenly in the pan and top with the remaining grated cheese.
Bake for 25-35 minutes or until cheese is bubbly and just beginning to brown. Remove from oven and allow pasta to cool for 5-10 minutes before serving.
