Stovetop Macaroni and Cheese

Sometimes you just need some creamy cheesy mac and cheese.  I have fallen in love with this recipe. It's so easy!!!! It takes minutes to prepare and is much better than grabbing one of the boxes from the store.  This recipe is from Baked Bree.

1 pound pasta
1 1/2 cups whole milk
2 tbsp flour
3 cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dry mustard
Pinch cayenne
Pinch freshly grated nutmeg

Boil the pasta according to the directions. Drain and set to the side.  Put 1 cup of milk in sauce pot.  In a small bowl whisk together the flour and 1/2 cup of milk until it is smooth and without clumps.  When the milk in the pot begins to steam, add the milk and flour mixture to it and stir.  Once the mixture begins to thicken up to the consistency of cream, stir in the cheese until smooth.  Stir in the salt, pepper, dry mustard, cayenne and nutmeg.   Pour over the pasta, stir to coat and serve.
