Tasty Tuesday - Stove-top Mac and Cheese.

I made this as a side for our Mother's Day leftovers last night and was pleasantly surprised at how good it was! Enjoy!

Stove-top Mac & Cheese
Photo and Recipe found here.

8oz macaroni, or any smallish tube shaped pasta
1 tablespoon butter
6 oz evaporated milk
6 oz freshly grated cheddar cheese (According to the author, it's really important to shred your own cheese, rather than buying shredded cheese.)
1 egg, beaten
1 teaspoon dry mustard powder
1/4 teaspoon red pepper
Hot sauce, to taste
Salt and pepper

Boil the pasta according to package directions, but reduce the cooking time by one minute. Drain and pour back into the cooking pot.

Over medium-low heat, add the butter and stir until melted.

Mix the egg, milk, and spices and pour over the pasta. Stir until it begins to thicken, about three to five minutes.

Remove the pan from the heat then add the cheese in four installments, making sure the first is melted completely before adding the next.
