  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) Canadian butter
  • 45 ml (3 tbsp) all purpose flour
  • 625 ml (2½ cups) 2% Canadian milk

Preparation

Preheat the oven to 205°C (400°F).

Cook the pasta al dente in a pot of boiling salted water. Drain.

Pour in the milk and bring to a boil, whisking. Add the cheese and stir until it has melted.

Return the pasta to the pot, then add half the pulled pork. Stir gently.
