Fergie's Four Cheese Mac

Could you ever do wrong with Mac & Cheese... I don't make it often because my family loves it way too much... and since I try to control the fat content in their foods this is not one of those eat often types of foods.  Still very good, creaming, cheesy, goodness. 

1 Pound of Pasta 
3-4 Ounces of each of the Following Cheeses
Extra Sharp Cheddar 
1/2 Stick of Unsalted Butter
3 Tablespoons Flour 
2 Cups Milk 
1 Cup Heavy Cream (Optional)
2 Teaspoons Kosher Salt
1 Teaspoon Fresh Ground Pepper
1 Teaspoon Mustard Powder
1 Teaspoon Garlic Powder
1 Cup Sour Cream 

These are your beautiful cheeses... this combination makes for an amazing mac & cheese... 

Grate all your cheeses and set aside... 

Boil your pasta according to instructions... 

Melt the butter and add the flour... 

Slowly cook the flour and butter... this is called a roux 

You need a light roux... cook for only 1-2 minutes... 

Add the milk, cream, salt, and spices... 

Mix in the noodles, cheeses, and sour cream.... Turn the heat off and mix... 

I sprinkle with extra parm & pecorino... 

Cheese Perfection!!!
