RECIPE

 

INGREDIENTS
  • 1 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoons flour
  • 1.5 cups water
  • 2 cups milk
  • 0.5 pound Shell Pasta
  • 0.5 lbs or 2 cups shredded Irish Cheddar
  • 0.25 lbs or 1 cup shredded Gruyere
  • Optional spices, up to a half teaspoon

     

      INSTRUCTIONS

      1. Melt butter in a large pot over medium-high heat.  Add flour, and stir until combined.  Cook for 1 minute, stirring occasionally.  Then pour in 1 cup of the water, and stir (or whisk) until the mixture is completely smooth and begins to thicken.  Gradually pour in the remaining water and milk, stirring until evenly combined.
      2. Stir in the pasta and any additional spices until combined. Then continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the mixture just reaches a simmer.
      3. Reduce heat to medium-low to maintain the low simmer.  Continue cooking, stirring occasionally, for about 9-10 minutes, or until the pasta is al dente.  (Be careful not to overcook the pasta!)
      4. Remove from heat, and stir in the cheese. Add the cheese gradually, to ensure it all melts.  Taste, and season with additional salt or black pepper as needed.
      5. Eat it NOW (but don't burn your mouth 😉)
