Ingredients

  • 2.5 ounces of short pasta, such as shells, elbows, or cavatappi
  • 1/3 cup (1 oz) of cheddar cheese
  • 1/3 cup milk (I used almond milk but you can use any type of milk you have)
  • 1 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 1 tbsp butter
  • salt and pepper

Directions

  1. Cook pasta according to package directions and drain.
  2. Using the same pot, melt the butter over low-medium. Once the butter is melted, add the flour and whisk together. Once combined, slowly start adding in the milk and continue whisking. The sauce will start to thicken. This takes about a minute.
  3. Once the sauce starts to thicken slightly, add in the cheese and mix until melted. Add a little bit of salt at this point to flavor the sauce. I add about 1/4 tsp.
  4. Add the pasta back into the sauce and mix together.
  5. Top with black pepper and serve.
