Dash hot sauce (to taste)
salt and and fresh cracked black pepper ( to taste) 1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
1 cup shredded Muenster cheese
1/2 cup shredded Gouda cheese
1/2 cup shredded Asiago cheese
1 pound macaroni pasta, cooked al dente
1 cup breadcrumbs
1/2 cup shredded mild cheddar for topping

Directions:

Heat oven to 350 degrees F.

Melt 6 tablespoons butter in a large sauce pot over medium heat. Add flour and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Whisk in the warmed milk or (half n half) and bring to a boil, continue to whisk constantly. The mixture will thicken as the heat increases. Continue to stir while adding the dry mustard, nutmeg, cayenne, salt, pepper,onion powder, smoked paprika and hot sauce. Stir in the 3 cheeses (muenster, gouda, asiago). Once melted, pour the cheese sauce over the noodles and add to a 3 quart casserole dish and stir well with a wooden spoon. Sprinkle the breadcrumbs and Cheddar Cheese on top, and bake for 35 minutes.
