Homemade mac & cheese

My first recipe from scratch~~

Spinach Feta Cheddar Mac & Cheese

¾ cup milk (1%, use 2% or whole milk for richer taste)
6 tablespoon butter
½ cup Parmesan (grated)
8 oz sharp yellow cheddar (shredded)
4 oz white sharp cheddar(shredded)
4 oz feta (crumbled)
18 oz of frozen chopped spinach ( as little or as much as you would like0
1 LB pasta (spirals or elbows are a nice touch)
salt & pepper to taste

Cook 1 Lb. of pasta noodles~drain. In the hot pan that was used to cook the pasta, melt 4 tablespoons of butter. Add 1/4 cup of milk to melted butter. Stir in pasta noodles until the butter has coated all the noodles.

Turn the stove top on a low flame. Add frozen spinach slowly to the pot stirring through the pasta. Add all the cheeses a bit at a time, stirring through the pasta. Add 2 more tablespoons of butter constantly stirring the mixture. Add the Parmesan stirring throughout the pasta. Add salt & Pepper to taste.

~Go ahead and taste the lovely delight :)
