Ingredients

How to make it

  • Boil the bowties or other noodles 3 minutes less than the package directions. They should still be a little hard because they will finish cooking in the oven.
  • Drain and put into a casserole.
  • While the pasta is boiling, melt the butter in a sauce pan, when hot add the shallots and cook until tender, add salt pepper and paprika and the flour.
  • Cook the flour until it takes on a little color.
  • Whisk in the milk and stir until sauce thickens ( this is a medium thick sauce and it will thicken more in the oven).
  • Add the cheddar cheese and stir until melted.
  • Pour over the pasta and mix a little.
  • Place in the oven and bake for 30 minutes or until the top browns slightly.

    I'm sure I would enjoy the flavor of the shallots in this, and the bow tie would "catch" all the good cheesy sauce...great idea!
