I created this recipe using several others as inspiration. I kept seeing "grown up mac and cheese" on food blogs and websites in the last few weeks so I decided to try to make one for myself. It turned out to be a very simple and VERY tasty dinner!
1 lb bag DeLallo Organic Whole Wheat Fusilli Bucati
1 1/2 cups (heavily packed) hot pepper-jack cheese
1 1/2 cups (heavily packed) cheddar cheese
2 cups milk
2 Tbsp butter
2 Tbsp flour
1 medium onion
2 cloves garlic
Melt butter in a large saucepan. Saute onions and garlic in butter until slightly browned and soft. Add flour and stir until well coated.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions.
Add milk to sauce pan and stir until well thickened.
Add cheese and mix well until fully melted. (I found the pepper-jack took quite a bit longer to melt fully)
Drain noodles and mix in with cheese sauce and serve.
