Description

Cheesy, creamy, and kind of addicting, this mac and cheese is a must-try!

Ingredients

  • 1 pound Pasta (I Used Elbow Macaroni)
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 3 Tablespoons All-purpose Flour
  • 2 cups Milk (I Used Skim)
  • 2 cups Shredded Havarti Cheese
  • 1 cup Fresh Spinach, Chopped
  • 1 dash Salt And Pepper, to taste

Preparation

1. Cook pasta in very salty water until it is al dente. Drain and set aside.

2. In a large saucepan, melt butter over medium heat.

3. When butter is melted, whisk in flour to form a roux. Let cook for 1-2 minutes, until roux has darkened.

4. Add milk a little at a time to the roux, whisking well between each addition to beat out any lumps. Whisk until all milk is incorporated.

5. Bring sauce to a simmer and cook, whisking occasionally, until it has thickened, about 8-10 minutes.

6. When sauce has thickened, remove it from the heat and stir in cheese, spinach, salt, and pepper. Stir until cheese has melted.

7. Toss pasta in sauce and serve immediately. Top with extra havarti cheese and fresh ground pepper if you’d like a bit of garnish.

Oh my….. such a delicious adult rendition of mac & cheese! Although the kids liked it too. Creamy, not clumpy, with just enough spinach to make it pretty but not overpower the mac & cheesiness! This will be a staple – thank you Jessie!
