8 ounces uncooked dried cavatappi pasta
Kosher salt, for pasta water
1 cup whole milk
1/4 teaspoon ground mustard
1/4 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
8 ounces (2 cups) Land O Lakes® Sharp Yellow Cheddar Cheese, shredded
4 ounces sliced Land O Lakes® Deli American, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
1 teaspoon cornstarch
1/4 cup Land O Lakes® Butter
How to make
Cook pasta in salted water according to package directions for al dente. Drain; set aside.
Meanwhile, whisk together milk, egg, ground mustard and hot sauce in medium bowl; set aside.
Toss together Cheddar cheese, Deli American and cornstarch until evenly coated. Set aside.
While pasta is draining, melt butter in pasta pot. Return pasta to pot; add milk mixture and cheeses. Cook over medium heat, stirring frequently, 5 minutes or until cheeses are melted and sauce is smooth and starting to bubble. Serve hot.
Salting your pasta water adds flavor and helps pasta cook better. There’s an old saying that your pasta water should be as salty as the sea. Shoot for 1 to 2 tablespoons kosher salt to about 1 gallon of water, and adjust to your taste.
