You may use any type of pasta, here I have used macroni. It can be Penne, Fettuccine, Rigatoni, Linguine, Orzo, Fusilli, or Bow tie/ Farfalle.
Always add macroni to boiling water.
I never add oil once pasta is cooked as oil coats the pasta and that deters it to coat sauce you wish to add into.
Always use whisk to make sauce as it prevents the formation of lumps.
If you find the sauce is thick then add some more milk to it.
Never discard the pasta water, I always use this into making gravies.
You can use cheese slices instead of grated cheese. Moreover you may increase or decrease the amount of cheese as per your preference.
