  • 4 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups whole milk (2% is good too)
  • 1 pound dry mini penne pasta
  • 8 ounces of Italian blend shredded cheese (*see below to make your own blend)
  • 1/3 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
  • 1 tablespoon dried Italian seasoning (I prefer McCormick Tuscan Style Italian Seasoning)


  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt it, cook pasta according to package directions, to al dente. Drain pasta once it is cooked and set aside. Work on the next step while your pasta is cooking.
  2. Meanwhile, in a medium sauce pan over medium heat melt butter, add flour and Italian seasoning and whisk for about 2 minutes to cook out the 'flour-y' taste. Add milk and continue to whisk occasionally, allowing the mixture to thicken. Add cheeses and whisk until fully combined.
  3. Pour cheese sauce over strained pasta and stir to combine. Sauce will thickens as it sits.
  4. Serve and enjoy!
