  • 1 lb Macaroni
  • 2 Tablespoons Butter
  • 1-1/2 cups Whole Milk
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 tablespoon whole grain Mustard
  • 8 oz Fontina Cheese Grated
  • 16 oz sharp white cheddar
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt More To Taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon Ground Black Pepper
  • 1 large onion finely diced
  • 2 sprigs Thyme
  • 2 cups fresh spinach
  1. Cook macaroni until very firm. According to the box instructions. Macaroni should be too firm to eat. Drain. Set aside.
  2. In a large pot, melt butter and add onion. Cook for 2 minutes until soft but not brown. Add Thyme.
  3. Pour in milk, add mustard, sour cream and combine. Reduce heat to low.
  4. Add in cheese and stir until melted.
  5. Add salt and pepper. Taste sauce and add more salt as needed. Do not under-salt, by the time you add pasta it will even out the salt flavor. Remember no one like bland pasta!
  6. Pour in drained, cooked macaroni and stir to combine. Add spinach and combine.
  7. Top with extra cheese, and bake for 20 minutes or until bubbly on top. Enjoy!
