How to make it

  • Flagship Cheese Sauce:
  • Melt butter in a heavy-bottomed saucepan over medium heat; whisk in flour. Continue whisking and cooking for 2 minutes.
  • Slowly add milk, whisking constantly. Cook, stirring frequently, until sauce has thickened, about 10 minutes. Remove from heat. Add cheeses, salt, chile powder, and garlic powder. Stir until cheese has melted and all ingredients are well incorporated, about 3 minutes.
  • Use immediately or refrigerate up to 3 days.
  • To reheat sauce, place in a saucepan over low heat, stirring frequently, until heated through.
  • Mac & Cheese:
  • Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Butter or oil and 8-inch baking dish; set aside.
  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Cook penne, according to package direction, for 2 minutes less than recommended on the package. Rinse pasta in cold water; set aside.
  • In a medium bowl, mix together cooked pasta and sauce gently but thoroughly. Pour pasta into prepared baking dish; sprinkle with cheeses and chile powder. Bake, uncovered, for 20 minutes. Let stand 5 minutes before serving.
