4 cup Pasta, macaroni, elbow, whole wheat, dry
3 tbsp All-purpose white flour
1 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Black pepper
2 1/4 cup Milk, fat-free (skimmed)
1/4 cup Cream cheese, fat free (softened)

Drop cream cheese by teaspoonfuls into milk mixture; bring to a boil over medium-high heat, stirring constantly. Reduce heat; simmer 2 minutes or until thick and cream cheese melts, stirring occasionally.

Stir in mustard, Worcestershire, and garlic; simmer 1 minute. Remove from heat. Add cheddar cheese, stirring until cheese melts. Combine pasta and cheese sauce in a large bowl; toss well.
