What you’ll need:

-1 stick salted butter

-6 tablespoons flour

-1 teaspoon black pepper

-1 teaspoon garlic powder

-1 teaspoon salt

-1 quart heavy cream

-1 pound pasta (cavatapi preferred)

-4 cups of cheese (4 different blends)

  • Options: white cheddar, shaved parmigiana mozzarella, monterey (I use blocks of cheese & shred myself, more flavorful).

-2 pounds beef tips

-1 each: yellow, red, orange, green pepper

-1 red onion

-Non-stick cooking spray

-9 x 13 baking dish

Directions:

-Start by boiling your water for the pasta.

-Add a pinch of salt.

-Once water is at a full boil, pour in the pasta and set a timer for 5 minuets.

-While the pasta is cooking, in a large sauté pan, brown the beef tips and chopped veggies.

-Shred the cheese.

  • I use a food processor, quick and makes perfectly small pieces.

-Once the timer goes off, immediately strain the pasta and run cold water over it to stop the cooking process.

-In a large skillet or soup pot on low heat, start melting butter and whisk in the flour. This is called a roux, equal parts fat to flour, a thickening process that can be used for sauce, soups ect.

-Do not allow the roux to get brown. The lighter it is, the more power it has to quickly thicken.

-Pour in the quart of heavy cream, whisk while it thickens.

-Slowly add cheese leaving about 1/2 cup aside for the top of the Mac & Cheese.

-Once the cheese has mostly melted stir in the pasta, browned beef tips and sautéed vegetables.

-Pour into a sprayed baking dish, top with remaining cheese & bake on 350 until top gets golden brown

-Enjoy!
