Recipe from: Evil Shenanigan’s
Boil the pasta according to package directions, but reduce the cooking time by one minute. Drain and pour back into the cooking pot.
Over medium-low heat, add the butter and stir until melted.
Mix the egg, milk, and spices and pour over the pasta. Stir until it begins to thicken, about three to five minutes.
Remove the pan from the heat then add the cheese in four installments, making sure the first is melted completely before adding the next.
*Cheese that comes ready-grated has anti-caking agents in it which changes the way it melts. It also changes the overall texture of the cheese sauce.
