Extra cheesy macaroni cheese

This is a very “usual” recipe, nothing special about it in general. But I love it as I (like so many others) love Italian food and everything related to it!

I added a few special ingredients to make this recipe as unusual as possible. And of course, tasty! Ohh, and the measurements used in this recipe feeds an entire, very hungry family!! You could simply use half of everything for approximately 3-4 serves.

Meanwhile, into a sauce pan, at medium heat melt the butter. Add the flour and continue whisking until a paste is formed.

Gradually add half the milk and continue whisking. Add the mustard and half the grated cheese.

Continue whisking. Add the rest of the milk and the rest of the cheese.

DO not forget the salt, and spices (oregano, garlic etc)

When pasta is done, put it all in a big casserole. Keep the water in which you cooked the pasta in order to boil de peas for 3 min.

Et voila!
