Penne pasta (10 oz)
2 cups milk
4 tablespoons Flour
4 tablespoons butter
2/3 cup heavy whipping cream
1 teaspoon mustard powder
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon pepper
Cayenne pepper, to taste
8 ounces old cheddar, grated


1. Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and return the macaroni to the pot.

2. While the pasta is cooking, whisk together the milk, flour and butter in a medium saucepan. Stir until combined and butter has melted.

3. Add cream, mustard, salt, pepper, cayenne and cheese to the sauce. Whisk together and simmer for 5 minutes or until thickened.

4. Add finished sauce to macaroni and stir, cooking until evenly heated.


  1. I just noticed that with the number of mac& cheese recipes you post it doesn't have it's own tag/catagory.

  2. I know, I thought of that last night. I think I'm going to have to make a category for it. I'm kind of curious just how many I've posted in all...

  3. I love Kitchen Historic! :-) And you can never have enough macaroni and cheese recipes! This recipe looks like a great version, love the heavy cream!
