Loaded with cheese, my All-American Mac-and-Cheese is just flat-out cheesy. And it has a little twist at the end to boot.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and add the macaroni.
Continue boiling until the pasta is al dente. Drain, but reserve 1 cup of the pasta water.
Melt the butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat.
Whisk in the flour, mustard powder and cayenne. Continue whisking for 1 minute.
Whisk in the evaporated milk and continue stirring until thick, about 5 minutes.
Add the cheeses and stir until melted.
Add the pasta and stir. If the mixture is too thick add a bit of the reserved pasta water.
Heat through and season with salt and pepper.
