Instruction

  1. Heat oven 400°F.

  3. Meanwhile, melt 1/2 cup butter in a Dutch oven over medium-low heat. Whisk in flour until lightly browned. Gradually whisk in milk and salt. Bring to a boil; cook and whisk for 2 minutes or until thickened. Reduce heat to low; gradually stir in cheddar, havarti and asiago until melted. Stir in pasta. Remove from the heat. Season with pepper to taste.

Recipe Tip

Any brand of Wisconsin cheddar, havarti or asiago cheeses can be used.

Cheesemonger Tip

A gold-medal winner at the World Championship Cheese Contest, Sartori’s Rosemary & Olive Oil Asiago is rich, fruity and nutty, yet balanced with hand-rubbed rosemary and Italian olive oil.
