It's a lightning-quick stovetop version of mac and cheese, made with spaghetti. No spaghetti? Use ziti. No ziti? How about shells? We can change this recipe every time or keep it the same but one thing won't change: the great taste!

What You'll Need:
  • 1 pound spaghetti
  • 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) butter
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups (1 quart) milk
  • 6 cups (24 ounces) shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon black pepper
What To Do:
  1. In a soup pot, cook spaghetti according to package directions; drain and set aside in colander.
     
  2. In the same pot, melt butter over medium heat then stir in flour. Gradually stir in milk and cook 3 to 5 minutes, or until thickened, stirring frequently. Add cheese, dry mustard, salt, and pepper and stir for 3 to 5 minutes, or until cheese is melted.
     
  3. Add spaghetti and cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until heated through, stirring constantly. Serve immediately.
