4 cups pasta, any shape, cooked just short of al dente

4 tablespoons butter

3 tablespoons olive oil

Preheat oven to 400 degrees. Place butter and olive oil in large pot over medium heat. Once melted, whisk in flour and stir until smooth and beginning to bubble. Whisk milk into roux and continue to stir until smooth and thickened, approximately 8 minutes. Mix in cheese until incorporated and remove from heat.
