Chipotle Macaroni and Cheese

*we used chipotle because I was feeling experimental but you could use plain old gouda

1/2 stick butter

1/2 cup finely chopped onion

1/4 cup flour

2 cups 2 % milk

2 cups skim milk

1 cup shredded spinach

1/4 lb of chipotle gouda slices (or 1 cup shredded gouda)

1/4 cup mozzarella

1 box whole wheat shells (cooked) *reserve a third of pasta water to add later*

1. Melt butter in a saucepan. Add onions and cook until softened, about 5 minutes.

2. Add in flour and whisk to thicken. Let thicken for a few minutes.

3. Pour in milk, bring to a boil and continue to whisk to incorporate. Add a pinch of salt and a few cranks of pepper.

4. Add in spinach and let cook for about 2 minutes.

5. Add gouda slices and mozzarella and stir in.

When everything is incorporated and thickened add in a small portion of pasta water and stir in. Use your best judgement on how much you add.

Add cooked medium shells and mix together.

Worth every bite.
