Cheesy Penne – Stick your fork in and twirl!


Now, I’m going to attempt a Playboy move here and try to post riveting articles about pasta, but do not be mistaken! There will be oodles of mind-blowing, pin-up sized noodle pix for you, my Gnoghties!

Ahem (cough, cough)…anyway…I digress. If it’s pasta that your craving, it’s pasta you’ll get folks. Welcome in… delectable recipes await. But, for those of you who can’t wait (tisk, tisk…be patient):

Cheezzzy Penne

Serves 1-4 *wink*

  • 8 oz penne pasta
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 T flour
  • 1 1/2 c milk
  • 1/2 c half & half
  • 4 oz white cheddar cheese (shredded)
  • 1/4 c parmesan cheese (grated)
  • 8 oz Gruyere cheese (shredded & divided)
  • 1 t salt
  • 1/4 t pepper
  • pinch of nutmeg
  1. Preheat oven to 350. Prepare pasta as directed.
  2. Melt butter in a medium saucepan over medium heat. Whisk in flour constantly for 1 minute. Gradually mix in milk and half & half, whisking constantly for 3-5 minutes. Stir in cheddar, parmesan and half of the Gruyere, along with the salt, pepper and nutmeg.
