Ingredients
  • Kosher salt
  • 8 ounces shell pasta
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 cups grated havarti cheese (about 6 ounces)
  • 1 1/2 cups grated colby jack cheese (about 4 ounces)
  • Pinch of grated nutmeg
  • 1/4 cup sour cream
Directions
  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Add the pasta and cook as the label directs. Reserve 1/2 cup cooking water, then drain.

  • Combine the evaporated milk, eggs, havarti, colby jack, 1/2 teaspoon salt and the nutmeg in a large saucepan over medium heat. Cook, whisking constantly, until smooth and thickened, about 8 minutes. Remove from the heat.

  • Add the pasta and sour cream to the sauce; toss to coat, then let sit 5 minutes so the sauce thickens slightly. Add the reserved cooking water to loosen, if desired.
