Super cheesy and decadently delicious, this Shells and Cheese Recipe is an easy, quick-fix dish that comes together in 20 minutes and always turns out perfect!
In a medium-sized sauce-pan over medium heat, melt the butter and sprinkle over the flour. Whisk together and allow to cook for 2 minutes, taking care not to let it brown. Slowly, add the warmed cream a splash at time, whisking until smooth after each addition until it reaches a pudding-like consistency. At this point you may whisk in the remaining cream and half-and-half.
Raise the heat to medium-high and allow to simmer for about 5 minutes, or until slightly thickened. Remove from the heat and add the cheddar a handful at a time, stirring after each addition until completely melted. Next, add the American cheese and stir until melted.
Add remaining ingredients and stir. Pour cheese sauce over pasta, stir to coat, serve and enjoy.
