    Aimchick's Note:

    This is GOOD--trust me! Tastes like a million bucks--maybe 2 million. I like to use cavatappi pasta (double elbows) because they are long and squiggly so they hold a lot of the sauce.

      Liked the idea of dry mustard/cayenne/worcestershire, so I tried this and experimented a bit. Replaced 2 C of cheddar with fontina/gruyere and used 1 C rice milk and 1 C half & half. Turned out rich and creamy. Think I'd add green scallions to add some bite - otherwise, really good comfort food with a simple green salad on the side - yummy!
