  • 1/2 cup heavy cream
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups uncooked macaroni any small pasta will do
  • 1 1/2 cups grated cheese I used 1/2 cup each of Cheddar, Gouda and Jack
  • 1/2 tsp dry mustard
  • 1 tsp salt
  • fresh minced parsley


  • Add milk, cream, salt, dry mustard, pasta and butter into a medium sized pan. over medium heat.
  • Bring the mixture to a simmer, stirring frequently. Once at a simmer, turn heat down to low.
  • Cook and stir frequently for about 20 minutes, until most of the liquid is absorbed. Add 1/4 cup more milk if pasta is not fully cooked and continue cooking until pasta is al dente.
  • Remove from heat and stir in cheeses. Cover and let stand for at least five minutes for the cheese sauce to set.
  • Serve immediately, garnished with fresh minced parsley if desired.
