  • After that pour milk into the pan, a little at a time while mixing continuously.
  • Keep mixing until the sauce is thick and smooth.
  • Add salt and processed cheese. Mix well.
  • Once the cheese melts completely, bring the sauce to a simmer and cook it for a couple of minutes.
  • Add the cooked pasta and toss well until the pasta is coated with the sauce.
  • Transfer it to the serving plate. Sprinkle freshly crushed black pepper over the top. Serve hot!
