The best recipe for mac & cheese I've tried yet! Feel free to switch out the cheeses for you favorite melty cheese!

1 Box Cavatappi Pasta (Yes, it is the BEST for Mac & Cheese)

1 Quart Milk

8 Tablespoons Butter 1 Stick

½ Cup Flour

2 Cups Shredded Extra Sharp Cheddar Cheese

4 Cups Shredded Cheddar Cheese

½ Tsp Fresh Ground Pepper

½ Tsp Salt

½ Tsp Nutmeg

½ Tsp Ground Mustard

1 Cup Bread Crumbs

Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Boil water and cook pasta according to directions on box and drain. Drizzle a little oil on pasta so it doesn’t stick. In a small sauce pan, heat milk but do not boil. In a 4 quart pot, melt 6 tablespoons of butter and add flour. Cook over low heat for 2 minutes stirring with a whisk. While whisking, add the hot milk and cook for another minute or two, until thick. Take pot off heat, and add cheeses, about a cup at a time, whisking until each cup is melted. Add salt, pepper, nutmeg, and ground mustard. Add pasta to pot and stir. Pour mixture in deep baking dish. Melt the remaining 2 tablespoons of butter. Add to bread crumbs in a bowl and mix. Sprinkle bread crumbs on top. Bake for 30-35 minutes until top is bubbling and golden.
