Number of Servings: 2


    - 2oz pasta, dry
    - 1 tsp flour
    - 1 tsp butter
    - 1 tsp (Dijon) mustard
    - 1/2 cup "milk" (in this case, soy milk)
    - 28g shredded cheese
    - 1 Tbsp panko bread cumbs
    - salt and pepper to taste
    - worcestershire sauce, about 1/4 tsp


Preheat oven to 400F.

Bring a large pot of water to a boil, salt, and cook pasta until not quite al dente. Dry and set aside.

In a small pan heat butter over medium heat until melted. Stir in flour, coat, and cook until a blond roux is formed, at least 30 seconds but probably a minute. Constantly whisking, add milk and cook until smooth, about 2 minutes. Turn off heat, add mustard and cheese. Add worcestershire sauce, if desired. Stir in pasta until fully coated.

Split between two oven-safe ramekins. Top with sprinkles of panko; spray with cooking spray. Bake about 10 minute, or until cheese is bubbling and top is golden; if it will not brown you can put it under the broiler for 30 seconds to a minute.

Serving Size: makes 2 servings, each in a 3/4 cup ramekin
