Cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and set aside.
In a medium sauce pan, melt butter over medium low heat. Whisk in flour.
Cook for about 1 minute. Add cayenne, nutmeg and season with a dash of salt and pepper.
Turn to medium heat and slowly whisk in heavy cream.
Add cheese. Stir until incorporated. Cook about 5 minutes, until the sauce thickens a bit.
Taste. Add more cheese if it’s not cheesy enough, and season if needed.
In a large bowl, mix pastas and sauce. Serve immediately.
Taste and add more if not cheesy enough.
You may have extra sauce. Just save for later. 🙂
If you find your sauce getting too thick, add a bit more cream or milk.
To reheat extra sauce, warm in a saucepan and whisk in a bit more milk. Cheese sauce, like gravy, thickens in the refrigerator.
