Easy Skillet Pimiento Mac 'n' Cheese

The other night, I tried a new recipe that I found in my Southern Living Magazine. It was really easy to make, and it was very good.

Here is the recipe:

1/2 (16 oz) package penne pasta

2 Tbsp. all purpose flour

1 1/2 cups low-fat milk

1 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese

1 (4 oz.) jar diced pimiento, drained

3/4 tsp. salt

1/4 tsp. pepper

pinch of paprika

1. Prepare pasta according to package directions.

2. Whisk together flour and 1/4 cup milk. Add flour mixture to remaining milk, whisking until smooth.

3. Bring milk mixture to a boil in a large skillet over medium heat; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, whisking constantly, 3 to 5 minutes or until smooth.

4. Stir in cheese and next 4 ingredients until smooth.

5. Stir in pasta, and cook 1 minute or until thoroughly heated. Serve immediately.
