Since Gary isn't home...

Everyone who knows Gary knows that he is an extremely picky eater and won't eat a lot including pasta.
So since he's at work tonight this is what I'm making myself for dinner... (and it makes GREAT leftovers!)

Mac & Cheese
1 pkg. (16 oz.) elbow macaroni
3 Tbsp. butter
3 Tbsp. flour
2.5 cups milk (I use 1%)
1 tsp. salt
1/2 tsp. onion powder
1/2 tsp. pepper
1/4 tsp. garlic powder (I use garlic salt)
1 cup shredded mozzerella cheese
1 cup shredded cheddar cheese
1 pkg (3 oz) softened cream cheese
1/2 cup crumbled Gorgonzola cheese (feel free to substitute - this is a strong cheese)
1/2 cup sour cream

Cook the macaroni (just do til al dente)
In a dutch oven or pot, melt the butter. Stir in the flour until it's smooth. Gradually stir in the milk and all the seasonings. Bring to a boil (and watch it because milk makes a HUGE mess if it boils over); cook and stir for about 2 minutes or until it's thick.
Reduce heat and add in all the cheese and stir it until it's a melted pot of cheesy goodness. Stir in the sour cream and stir in the (drained) pasta.

  1. He won't eat pasta? Really? I think there's something VERY wrong with that!
