Directions

HIDE IMAGES
Step 1
In a large pot or cast-iron skillet over medium heat, melt the Butter (1/2 cup) add in the All-Purpose Flour (1/2 cup) . Whisk together for about 1 minute to fully cook the flour.
Step 2
Add in the Cream Cheese (4 Tbsp) and continue to whisk together while slowly adding the first cup of Whole Milk (3 cups) in about 4 additions, whisking the sauce together until combined between each pour. While continuing to whisk, add in the rest of the milk.
Step 3
While the sauce is thickening, add the Seasoned Salt (1/2 Tbsp) , Smoked Paprika (1 Tbsp) , Brown Sugar (1 Tbsp) , Ground White Pepper (1 tsp) , and Ground Nutmeg (1/2 tsp) .
Step 4
Once the sauce has thickened (about 5 minutes) mix in the Shredded Cheddar Cheese (2 cups) and Monterey Jack Cheese (1 cup) and stir until smooth. Reduce heat to low.
Step 5
Boil Elbow Macaroni (3 1/3 cups) to al dente, then add to the cheese sauce. Reserve about a cup of pasta water.
Step 6
Take off the heat and stir together. The sauce will be loose but will thicken as it cools. Add the pasta water as needed to keep a creamy sauce, then serve.
