Ingredients
16 ounces
½ cup
6 tablespoons
4 cups
Whole milk (warmed)
4 cups
shredded, sharp Cheddar cheese
1 teaspoon

freshly ground Black pepper (to taste)

Preparation steps

1.
Preheat the oven to 350°F / 176°C and position a rack in the center of the oven. Grease a casserole dish.
2.
Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the macaroni and cook according to the package directions until al dente. Drain well.
3.
Return the pasta pot to the stove over medium-low heat. Add butter and melt. Add the flour and cook, whisking constantly, until smooth. Let bubble for 1 minute, without letting it brown. Whisk in the milk and bring to a simmer. Remove from the heat and immediately toss in the cheese and dry mustard but do not stir. Let stand for a minute or so, then whisk until the cheese is melted. Season with salt and pepper. Add the drained pasta, ground beef and peppers; toss with the cheese sauce.
4.
Transfer the macaroni and cheese to the casserole dish. Bake until bubbly and golden brown, about 25 minutes. Let stand for 5 minutes before serving.
